This orchestra from Argentina plays traditional, acoustic music with the guts and spirit of the 21st century. Astillero
was founded in Buenos Aires and uses this capital city's tango as its starting point. The orchestra completely unravels the structure of the dance and thus creates an entirely new, rough - and even violent -version of this traditional style. The orchestra writes all its own compositions with the frequent addition of vocals and spoken words that go straight to the heart. From an early age, the members of Astillero worked with Argentina's leading tango musicians and they now make their knowledge and virtuosity available to the next generation. The orchestra has released two albums to date.
