Monday Highlights Gotan Project 3.0 show

Bucharest is becoming a reference point on the tango-lovers’ map. Delighted with the enthusiastic welcome they were given last year, Gotan Project is making a highly anticipated comeback (their fourth) to Bucharest. Tonight, at the Palace Hall, the most famous electro tango band will give a demonstration of the 3.0 (the title of their latest album) theory: new music is old music.

Subtle, dynamic, sensual, tango has long ceased being a nostalgic genre. Gotan Project, the band which reinvented the genre, feels very much at home in Bucharest. “It was love at first sight,” Cristoph H. Muller says.

Today’s most celebrated electro tango band started out as a musical experiment. Philippe Cohen Solan, Eduardo Makaroff and Cristoph H. Muller, the trio behind Gotan Project, were the first to successfully bring traditional music and folklore on the electronic scene. “La Revancha del tango”, their first album, sold in a million copies; it was followed by a second album, drawing heavily on jazz influences, “Lunatico”, after which Gotan Project embarked on a world tour. 12 years and over 2 million records sold later, after having put in some poetry, many experiments and a lot of work, the album “Tango 3.0” (2010) consecrates Gotan Project as a “world music” classic, to be tasted anytime and anywhere, redefining the elements which made Gotan Project an absolutely unique musical project. The tango experience envelops the listener, from the leisurely opening of “Tango Square”, a cross between a New Orleans funereal march and a boulevardier waltz, to the rock influences of “De hombre a hombre”.

Tickets can be bought via the Eventim network: Germanos, Orange and Vodafone shops and Humanitas bookshops.

Doors open at 7 pm.
