TangoMundo continue their Piazzolla Project with the launch of their latest CD Fracanapa. TangoMundo are unique in Australia; specialising in authentic tango standards and with over 50 Piazzolla works in repertoire, including his most popular songs. All arrangements are by Argentine violist Guillermo Anad, and played by Anad, Dave Evans on piano accordion and Faye Bendrups on piano and vocals.
Astor Piazzolla melded the best of traditional tango with Baroque fugue structures, jazz flourishes, echoes of klezmer and references to North American popular music styles. He had the vision and determination to reinvent this most emblematic of cultural expressions and to take it on the road around the world where he inspired musicians of all nations to take up the tango.
