iTunes Review

Bajofondo was formed by the well-known Argentinean producer and soundtrack composer Gustavo Santaolalla and the Uruguayan DJ/programmer Juan Campodónico. The group creates music that updates tango and other styles rooted in the region around the Rio de la Plata, the river that runs between Argentina and Uruguay. (Mar Dulce, their second album, takes its name from another term for that river.) Like Gotan Project, Bajofondo weds traditional instruments such as bandoneón and violin to contemporary grooves. On the opener, “Grand Guignol,” the instrumental chugs like a modern club hit, but típico bandoneón riffs meet up with strings that split the difference between disco and tango. Argentinean rockers (Gustavo Cerati, Juan Subirá), a Spanish rapper (Mala Rodriguez), a Mexican pop star (Julieta Venegas), and Elvis Costello are among the various artists who make guest appearances. The voices of two now-deceased performers make key contributions. “Zitarrosa,” uses a sample of the Uruguayan singer and writer Alfredo Zitarrosa (1936-1989) speaking about musical roots. And “Chiquilines” features the last recording of the extraordinary black Uruguayan vocalist, Lágrima Ríos (1924-2006).

Customer Reviews

LUXURY ! Simplemente De Lujo !

If you just want to Try with a few tracks, go first with Pa'Bailar ft. Julieta Venegas, is the best song of this CD. Also...Slippery Sidewalks ft. Nelly Furtado , And ... El Mareado ft. Gustavo Cerati. This is a GREAT Group, and they are from ARGENTINA !!!

massively entertaining and satisfying

Very often compared to Gotan Project, This band of very diverse and talented musicians is headed by an Oscar winner and a new giant in the Film Music business. Gustavo Santaolala incedently the oldest member of the band is a true talent , not only in the nuevo Tango Scene but also in World Music as well. The clloborations with diverse artists , from Elvis Costello to Juan Sabria makes the collection a real variety show, with taste. Suppervielle's influnce is somewhat lesser here than in the earlier outing but still strong enough to make a strong case for the Uruguayian/French keyboardist's claim as second in charge. This band is very entertaining live . For those who arent real fans , it is great way to be introduced to the band which is quite energatic on stage . This collection is highly recommended to those who appreciate well made music of any genre.

Mar de la Mediocridad

Un disco previsible aburrido, comercial y oportunista. Un poco mas de eso a lo que Santaolalla nos tiene acostumbrados ultimamente. Nos cansaremos de escucharlo como cortina de todos los Noticieros e Informativos. En una discoteca de Buenos Aires, de madrugada se escuchara decir a algun Europeo..... I love tango...... Y entonces este rejuntado de buenos productores, podrá cumplir su sueño de alguna vez juagar a que si son músicos y subir a un escenario y hacer como si tocaran. Lamentable
