Los Tangueros del Oeste are steeped in the Nuevo Tango styles of Astor Piazzolla, Gotan Project and Bajo Fondo. Focusing on original compositions, the group blends beats and textures from Hip-Hop and Electronica with Flamenco influences filtered through an mprovisational lens. Their singular Nuevo Tango sound is cool, impassioned, sensuous, seductive and utterly dance-inducing. Featuring the Spanish lyrics, poetry and golden voice of Argentine singer Manuel Berterreix, the piano virtuosity of Grammy nominated Argentine pianist Pablo Estigarribia, the bandoneon mastery of Charles Gorczynski who also mixed the album at Caverns, Minneapolis MN, the Hip-Hop drums of Bay Area electronic music producer Daniel Riera (Snap judgement, Soltron), the Flamenco inflected strumming of Venezuelan master guitarist Carlos Caminos and the emotionally lyrical sounds of Puerto Rican violinist Ishtar Hernandez surrounded by the lush compositions of bassist/composer/ bandleader Sascha Jacobsen (Trio Garufa, The Musical Art Quintet), Alma Vieja is at once an album for Tango lovers and an opening for all listeners into this magical world.
