Gotan Project: Una musica brutal

Just discovered Gotan Project, a multicultural trio of musicians (an Argentine, a Frenchman and a Swiss) based in Paris. Probably best known for their first album, La Revancha del Tango, their interpretation of tango music captures – for me at least – a part of what it feels like to walk the streets of Buenos Aires.

Really, all of the tracks are sensational, but the song I can't stop listening to: "Una musica brutal"

Here it is, dubbed over a clip from "Take the Lead" with Antonio Banderas.




Descubrimos vos y yo
en el triste carnaval
una musica brutal
melodias de dolor

Despertamos vos y yo
y en el lento divagar
una musica brutal
encendio nuestra pasion

Dame tu calor,
bebete mi amor

That is a great song by the Gotan Project. You should checkout Tanghetto too. Both Gotan and Tanghetto were playing everywhere we went when we were in BA. Now when I hear them, I am instantly transported back.
