Tangolandó is the first encounter of the tango with Afro-Peruvian music, a journey integrating sounds born from the need of communication and exchange in Latin American music. The penetrating passion of tango together with the sensuality and mischievousness of the Afro-Peruvian and creole genres give life to this meshed, fluid and organic approach from Sofía Tosello and Yuri Juárez. From the bandoneon’s melancholic sounds to the rogue beat of the cajon, Tangolandó recreates in a perfect balance timeless tangos through the freshness of Peru’s coastal contemporary music.
Tangolando was born in New York between a Peruvian musician (Yuri Juárez) and an Argentine singer (Sofia Tosello) conscious of the communication need in such a cosmopolitan and diverse city. The record holds tango classics, songs by Carlos Gardel, Astor Piazzola, Enrique Cadícamo, Homero Expósito, and new compositions by Yuri Juárez.
