ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Sultry, smooth, and unlike anything you're likely to hear beyond the streets of Buenos Aires..." SXSW 2012 Thursday Picks & Sleepers

Appearing multiple times in SXSW as well as music festivals across the North and South America, Zona Tango showed Buenos Aires the new way to play electronico. Lead by fusion pioneer Pedro Menendez, the band proves itself to be one of the leaders of the new tango sound in Argentina by blending together electronics, tango, jazz, Argentine folk and bossa nova beyond any traditional limits..."

'If you were lucky enough to be at the Elephant Room for the U.S. premiere of Zona Tango, then you know that all electronic music is not created equal. Blood ties between Spain, France, and Argentina are often difficult to tease out in the contemporary world, but a spin through the back catalog of this Buenos Aires trio offered a glimpse into the promise that taped music holds for keeping old styles alive. By Dan OKO, The Austin Chronicle, SXSW 2008


ZONA TANGO - FULL BIO:

Zona Tango is the most eclectic musical project of the Argentinian talented composer and virtuous multi-instrumentalist Pedro Menendez (Piano/Guitar/ Winds/Bandoneon).
Wellknown as avant-gardist of the fusion style in his country, his own and personal composition style can be appreciated throughout his vast discography and a long career of national and international live performances in Argentina, Brazil, US, Canada & Europe.

Year 2004 -
After a long stay in Europe, Pedro Menendez came back to Buenos Aires with new interesting views and the need to experiment.

At that moment he joined talented, expressive bandoneonist Oscar Fasanelli together with Maurice Lvar on Electronics and the first CD of ZONA TANGO was released: ELECTRONICO (2004).

ELECTRONICO, the Album, managed to create an alternative space inside the emerging electrotango genre by an unique eclectic and virtuous style that went beyond the simple fusion of modern tango and electronic sounds and added other elements like jazz and contemporary classical music.

In June 2006, BRAZILTANGO, the second discographic work of ZONA TANGO, brought to the world the innovative idea of blending two opposite styles. Nostalgia of Tango, Joy and Warmth of Bossa were divinely reflected in nine original compositions and two personal arrangements of the wellknown songs Adis Nonino (Astor Piazzolla) and Corcovado (Antonio Carlos Jobim).

PSICODELIA TANGO (2010), the 3th CD of ZONA TANGO, came to captivate once again the audiences: new solid melodies melting into a hint of psychedelic ingredients, electronic sounds and tango inflections.

"ELECTRO PAMPA" is one of the recents projects of ZONA TANGO. Their most experimental, meticulous and urban work. “Robotic evocations of a very cosmopolitan Argentine Pampa"..
