Album Notes
What on earth is AFRO-TANGO? A Classically trained Quartet - Stanislav Angelov (Accordion), Albert Combrink (Piano), Jacek Domagala (Violin) and Basil Heald (Bass), that plays Argentinian Tango Nuevo, are joined by a traditional African Musician from the famous African Music Performing troupe "Amampondo". African drums combined with Astor Piazzolla might SOUND like a strange concept, but audiences have loved it. It's just so electrifying to hear the Tango take on a new guise with powerful African percussion on African drums (the Djembe) and a Kenyan Kayombo.

We use an accordion, not the usual Bandoneon associated with this music. Some afficionados were sceptical, but our accordionist (A BULGARIAN LIVING IN AFRICA - GO FIGURE...) has studied the Argentinian style to his bones.

Some tangos are for dancing - we do the famous Al Pacino Tango from "Scent of a woman" - and some are classic Tango Nuevo: the great Piazzolla numbers are there - Adios Nonino and Primavera Porteno are given broad treatments and Libertango is done with African Drumming.

We have done quite a few shows with Tango Dancers and while the dance adds its own electricity, this CD is great for listening to, according to our fans!

I guarantee that if you enjoy Piazzolla, or Tango, this will be worth your time and effort. We are respectful of the tradition of Tango Nuevo, but I can honestly say it is a UNIQUE, NEW sound (OK, every body says that, but no-one has done this music with African Instruments before, right?)
