22. May – Milonga Concert with El Cachivache Orkesta de Tango

Some call them “modern buffoons” and others say that they do traditional and danceable tango and both are true. Their distorted tango mixed with a post-punk look attracts and repels the public at the same time. With a good dose of humor, they have created some improvised introductions for classic tangos, with which they open their vigorous show.

Their distorted tango mixed with a post-punk look attracts and repels the public at the same time.

In 2008, two Argentine musicians residing in Spain reconnected with their Buenos Aires roots and formed El Cachivache. They quickly attracted the attention of European circuits for their distinctive style.

The group has varied through the years as a trio, quartet, and quintet. Once they returned to Buenos Aires in 2013, they began to develop their own compositions, which today are a fundamental part of their repertoire. These days, they continue to play classic tangos, always with original arrangements.

El Cachivache Orkesta has visited more than 50 countries on three continents and performed more than 1000 shows.
