As part of the showcase festival at WOMEX 07 in Sevilla, we introduced the wild wizard of tango, Daniel Melingo (Argentina). First rising to popularity as a surf-rock musician, Melingo reinvented himself as a tango innovator, including in the style electronica, dub and free jazz, along with a humour that is both silly and dark.
Today, we listen to a live version of his track 'Narigón' from the 2004 album Santa Milonga. In this performance, Melingo shows off the effortlessly cool and bizarre nature of his style. Bonus points if you can recognise the various musical quotes the band introduce here...
