Radio Show: The tango of today [1999-2017]

We can’t stop to promote and diffuse tango in high quality for your entertainment,
so let’s go straight to the point of all this. Shall we?

We all know and love our D’Arienzo, Di Sarli, Caló, Pugliese and Tanturi. But who knows Misteriosa Buenos Aires, or Andariega, or even the New Tanturi orchestra? Romántica Milonguera? Sans Souci?… no?. Well, we’ll change that today and every Friday from now on.
Let’s do a little summary of each orchestra’s story:


  • Orquesta Típica Andariega:
    This orchestra was born in 2009, mixing old classics with new original compositions, even some songs are sung in Italian!. They have issued 3 CDs so far: “Pertenencia” (2011), “Andiamo” (2014) and their newest “Bailliamo” (2016). They’ve made European tours every year between 2011 and 2015, visiting France, Italy, Austria, Germany, Norway, Switzerland, Denmark, Holland and Belgium. They have a curious style mixed between Di Sarli and Biagi.


  • Orquesta Típica Esquina Sur:
    Another orchestra born in 2009, following the style of Osvaldo Fresedo and issuing a CD this year: “Buscándote” (2016). They played in various Argentine milongas, Tango festivals, the 2014 Festival y mundial de tango de Buenos Aires, and international tango festivals in Uruguay and Brasil. They’ve also been working since 2010 with the José Verdi society in the “Ciclo de tango en el Verdi” organizing concerts, tango classes and inviting other groups to play in the Verdi Teather. All this self-managed and with free entry.


  • Orquesta Típica Misteriosa Buenos Aires:
    This orchestra was born in 2003 under the name of “Fervor de Buenos Aires”, they issued only one CD “Quién sos” (2006) and they were the only ones who took the challenge to follow the style of Di Sarli. They also accompanied Oscar Ferrari in his final years. They did a couple European tours in Scotland, Greece, Sicily and Austria.
    In 2008 they took the decision to do more personal interpretations of old milonguero classics and some original compositions, changing the name to Misteriosa Buenos Aires. They issued 3 CDs so far under this name: “De salón” (2010), “Una noche en la milonga” (2013) and “Tu lado acústico (2015)”. They did 3 European tours in 2010, 2013 and 2015. Visiting France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Greece, Czech Republic, Poland and Holland.


  • Orquesta Típica Romántica Milonguera:
    They’ve been working in the Oliverio Girondo for three years now but maybe they’re older. There’s not much info about them. They rescue and play all the romantic songs of the 40s and 50s. They hadn’t recorded an album but we got some nice recordings… just don’t ask where we got them, hehe. A very nice orchestra with young people.


  • Orquesta Típica Sans Souci:
    The oldest on the list! It was born in 1999 with the purpouse to rescue and preserve the styles of Caló and Maderna. Since they don’t have access to the original arranges made be Maderna they copied them note by note as best as they could from the original recordings. Truly a passionate and dedicated work. They issued two CDs “Al estilo del 40” (2003) and “Acústico y monoaural” (2015). They played in the very first tango festival of Lisboa and visited various provinces of Argentina, alongisde some presentations in Uruguay and Colombia.


  • Orquesta Típica Tanturi:
    The 2nd youngest one. Founded in 2015, this orchestra plays in the style of Ricardo Tanturi with very faithful arranges and nice singers. They presented themselves in various Argentine milongas, radio shows and are currently tackling a very ambitous project: La noche de las milongas. A very big milonga where four tango orchestras play live for all the milongueros present. Since they are so young its obvious they hand’t made an European tour, but a little bird told us they’re planning to do so in the near future… They’ve issued a CD just some weeks ago and they were generous enough to give us a free copy to show to you all.


  • Los Milonguitas
    Los Milonguitas is a Trio conformed by Simone Tolomeo (Bandoneón and Arranges), Pablo Murgier (Piano and Arranges) and Alessio Menegolli Grandi (Double-Bass). This group was born in 2014 and aims to do danceable tangos. They don’t stick to a particular style, but they have some very nice recordings in the style of D’Arienzo, Caló and our always beloved Troilo. Very clean and correct interpretations, alongside a dash of “mugre”. They were very kind to gave us a preview of their very new CD. These guys are currently in an European Tour. So if you liked their recordings, we suggest you to go and see them live if you have the chance. You won’t regret it!


  • Tango Bardo
    A Quartet of powerful and danceable interpretations. Created in 2012 to accompany Mora Godoy in her show “Chantecler tango” They played all over Asia with Mora Godoy, in the ETI Rio Cuarto, Córdoba (Milongas organized in other provinces besides Bs.As.), in Montevideo, Uruguay, in Chile and in Brazil. They released two free to download CDs in their page listed at the end of this blog entry.
