The Argentine-Uruguayan collective, made up of some of the most accomplished young artists from both sides of the Rio Plata, have just released a new masterpiece, Mar Dulce.
This is the nexus of a creative powerhouse – the tentacles of Bajofondo’s individual components reach into all the coolest and most innovative aspects of Latin music and culture. Santaolalla is one of the top music producers in Latin America, and composer of soundtracks for films like Amores Perros, 21 Grams, Motorcycle Diaries, Brokeback Mountain and Babel. He is a singer, composer, producer, guitarist, and director of Surco Records and publishing company. The list of artists he has produced is pages long, but includes Juanes, Julieta Venegas, De La guarda, Juana Molina, Kronos Quartet, Antonio Carmona. With his project CafÃ© de los Maestros he has produced some of the most significant living legends of tango. Producers/Djs and keyboardists Campo and Supervielle have also enormous reach into the creative world of Latin music. They have recently worked with artists like Jorge Drexler, Ximena Sarinana.
But when the collective comes together to record and tour as Bajofondo, the sum is even greater than the whole of the talented parts. It is the sound of the hottest club in Buenos Aires late at right, and right now. A joyous, but complex mix of tango, dub, drum&bass, dance beats and jazz. Live, the show features the live projections of VJ Veronica Loza.
This concert has received support from Club Med, Business Centers International, Atlantic Broadband, the City of Miami Beach Cultural Arts Council, and Miami Dade Department of Cultural Affairs.
