Daniel Melingo (commonly known by his last name alone) emerged at the turn of the century as the rogue of tango music. Media surrounding Daniel Melingo paints a picture tango fans are certain to love. Publicity photos at once appeal to an angst ridden film noir aesthetic and harken to busts of classical composers. His copy hails Melingo as tango's mad scientist/bohemian reveler/savior. A genre such as tango, which has long enjoyed an air of dark mystery, seems a natural fit for this Argentinean national with a flair for the dramatic, yet it is far from the world where his career began. The Buenos Aires native came to national attention as a member of the alternative rock band Los Abuelos de la Nada, playing saxophone. The group enjoyed a fruitful career throughout the 1980's tapering off in the early 1990's. Simultaneously, Melingo maintained a successful side project called Los Twist, known for a retro Rockabilly sound and impishly irreverent lyrics, in which he played guitar. By the mid 90's Melingo had shifted focus to his career as a solo artist. His first record, a look at tango through creative rock lenses, was released on Polygram in 1996, entitled H20. Over the course of the next ten years, Melingo would undergo something of a reinvention of his artistic identity from ‘alt-rocker interested in tango' to ‘old school tanguero gone mad,' during which time he released two more solo records. Somewhere between 1999's Tangos Bajos and 2005's Santa Milonga that transformation was completed. Melingo's 2008 release Maldito Tango on the Paris based label Mañana Music presented the visage of a brooding genius, half Tom Waits, half Francisco Canaro, whose Rockabilly days were long since forgotten. The record captured the attention of listeners throughout Europe and Argentina alike, with a strong presence on both jazz and world music charts. ~ Evan C. Gutierrez, All Music Guide
