This orchestra from Argentina plays traditional, acoustic musicwith the guts and spirit of the 21st century. Astillero was foundedin Buenos Aires and uses this capital city's tango as its startingpoint. The orchestra completely unravels the structure of the danceand thus creates an entirely new, rough - and even violent -version of this traditional style. The orchestra writes all its owncompositions with the frequent addition of vocals and spoken wordsthat go straight to the heart. From an early age, the members ofAstillero worked with Argentina's leading tango musicians and theynow make their knowledge and virtuosity available to the nextgeneration. The orchestra has released two albums to date.
