Jorge Drexler: NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert
April 13, 2018 | Felix Contreras -- Jorge Drexler is a poet with a gift for song. The Uruguayan singer-songwriter, like the iconic Latin American lyricists of the past (Mercedes Sosa, Victor Jara and Silvio Rodriguez, to name just a few), has that rare ability to surround multi-layered prose with music that lends an even deeper resonance to the words.
Drexler has his share of fans here in the U.S., mostly Latin American expats and others whose grasp of the language allows them to appreciate the nuances of his storytelling. But, as if often the case with music performed in languages other than English, audiences here sometimes miss out on an emotional connection with artists they would otherwise celebrate if they only knew what they were singing.
So, we decided to do something about that with Jorge Drexler's appearance at the Tiny Desk. With the cooperation of the artist, we translated Drexler's thoughtful and playful ruminations on the human condition, and included them as subtitles.
Those clever lyrics wouldn't hit as hard if not for Drexler's backing band of magicians. The mix of guitarists and percussionists conjured a stunning cloud of sound that allowed Drexler to take flight, like the existential dreamer that he is.

TANGO 💃 Music Mix
Tango Selebre Traditional Music// Songs Choice & Mix By Myself//
Tango, a distinctive dance and the corresponding musical style of tango music, began in the working-class port neighborhoods of Buenos Aires (Argentina); and years later in Montevideo, Uruguay; the area of the Rio de la Plata. There are numbers of theories about the origin of the word tango. One of the more popular in recent years has been that it came from the Niger–Congo languages of Africa.Another theory is that the word tango, already in common use in Andalusia to describe a style of music, lent its name to a completely different style of music in Argentina and Uruguay. The story begins with the Argentinean tango Gauchos who went into full nightclubs and prayed local girls to dance. Since there is not a shower, girls are circling around them tossing her head back. As gauchos rode steadily, with knees in a bent position, the position of the legs are transferred to the dance. In the Argentine tango to show the contrast of male and female, firm-soft, rough-sentimental, but most often it is accompanied by the music of violin, guitar, double bass, piano and bandoneon. Because of its erotic karakterizma was banned for years. Tango began to conquer Europe in 1907, and the first it has taken Paris. In America, it was popularized by Rudolph Valentino. The English are 1920s of the 20th century Argentine tango into a standard dance, whose characteristics are convulsions (especially head), passionate progressive movements, sudden delays and strict separation of the figure, no lifting and lowering. European tango requires strictly matching the beat. Phrasing is very important. Performed in Two-four cycle, with an emphasis on the first and third wave.(Wikipedia)

Música: Julio Carrasco
Pablo and Ludmila are both professional musicians and tango dancers. They studied music at the University of Music and Perfoming Arts (MDW) in Vienna, Austria and improved as tango dancers in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
It is important to emphasize that Pablo & Ludmila are the first and only couple in the entire world that dances tango and also plays music as a Tangoduo (Piano & C-violin).
In October 2013, Pablo & Ludmila won the 1st prize and the Viewers´ Choice award at the International Open Tango Salon Championship in Budapest, Hungary.
In July 2019 they participated in the European Tango Contest in Münster, Germany and they won:
2nd prize Category MILONGA
3rd prize Category TANGOVALS
3rd prize Category TANGO ESCENARIO
They have also performed and taught tango in Chile, Argentina, Canada, USA, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia, France, Spain, Montenegro, Moldova, Poland, Greece, Czech Rep. and Hungary.
“Cuarteto Rotterdam can with good reason be regarded as one of the best European tango ensembles”, “excellent interaction”, “a great moment of tango”, “the best and most interesting tango music that I have heard in a long time”, “this tango quartet of European top class enthralls” – these are just some of the effusive press reactions over the last years.
Today, concert halls and international tango festivals like in Paris, Istanbul, Zurich, Amsterdam and even Buenos Aires can no longer be imagined without these four musicians who have always been able to inspire both concert-goers and tango dancers. In 2011 the quartet even won the 48th Klingenthal International Accordion Competition in the category of instrumental groups with bandoneón.
Brought into being in 2004, the ensemble was named after its birthplace in the Netherlands, where, at that time, the three founding members, Michael Dolak, Susanne Cordula Welsch and Judy Ruks, were studying tango at the Rotterdam Academy for World Music. Since 2007 they have been living and working in Berlin and Stuttgart.
Cuarteto Rotterdam is tango – full of passion, virtuosity and power – taking into account of more than 100 years of tango history. Being conscious of this tradition, they perform the early and more cheerful kind of tango music from the Guardia Vieja era with such ease that it makes everyone want to dance. In a compact quartet style, they present the Golden Age of tango from the 1940’s with the highlights of the grand orchestras a la Di Sarli, Troilo, D’Arienzo, Pugliese or Salgán. They feel so close to the challenging Tango Nuevo of Astor Piazzolla that the heartfelt melancholy and complexity of this music is noticeable all the time. And they are curious – curious about the new aspects of tango. In searching for the tango of the 21st century, they have included contemporary Argentine and European tango pieces in their concert and dance programme.
The quartet’s classic structure, consisting of bandoneón, violin, piano and double bass, provides a sound experience ranging between tradition and modernity. With their creativity, imagination and experience this small orchestra conjures up a world of tango for all kinds of emotions.
Michael Dolak (Germany) – bandoneón
Susanne Cordula Welsch (Germany) – violin
Judy Ruks (Netherlands) – piano
Anna-Maria Huhn (Germany) – double bass

Inscribed in 2009 on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity
The Argentinian and Uruguayan tradition of the Tango, now familiar around the world, was developed by the urban lower classes in Buenos Aires and Montevideo in the Rio de la Plata basin. Among this mix of European immigrants to the region, descendents of African slaves and the natives of the region known as criollos, a wide range of customs, beliefs and rituals were merged and transformed into a distinctive cultural identity. As one of the most recognizable embodiments of that identity, the music, dance and poetry of tango both embodies and encourages diversity and cultural dialogue. It is practised in the traditional dance halls of Buenos Aires and Montevideo, spreading the spirit of its community across the globe even as it adapts to new environments and changing times. That community today includes musicians, professional and amateur dancers, choreographers, composers, songwriters, teachers of the art and the national living treasures who embody the culture of tango. Tango is also incorporated into celebrations of national heritage in Argentina and Uruguay, reflecting the widespread embrace of this popular urban music.

Any requests for scores, please follow the instructions in my profile. Follow this link to my profile:
Francisco Canaro (November 26, 1888 – December 14, 1964) was an Uruguayan violinist and composer of dance music, and most famous for his tangos. His family moved to Argentina when he was 10, where he moved from extreme poverty to become one of the most successful and richest musicians then. He was very prolific in composition as well as recording, and a pioneer in the tango, making several important innovations to that musical form. He introduced the vocalist who would sing the main part of the tango.
Sentimento Gaucho is one of Canaro's more popular tangos, originally for voice and orchestra. It comprises two sections which are repeated. The piano plays the main tango (the melody carried by the vocalist) with the violin providing the counter-melody.
The Very Latinx History of Punk
Punk is more than music: It’s a way of life; it’s a politic; it says something about the world we’ve lived in and the world we want to create. It’s also served as a haven for the misfits, the disillusioned and the marginalized. But the narratives that exist about punk, outside those in the know, treat it as though it was just about angst. Punk is treated as though it’s simply the byproduct of a particular kind of punk: the angry white boy. But the history of punk is a history that intersects across communities building on similar sounds and politics. In the final episode of Pop Americana’s first season, Sana Saeed explores the Latinx punks - from Lima to Los Angeles - and their role in making punk, well, punk.

Astor Piazzolla in portrait
This documentary explores The Life and Music of Astor Piazzolla.
Astor Piazzolla In Portrait include the films Tango Maestro & Tango Nuevo; written, narrated, filmed and directed by Michael Dibb (as Mike Dibb) and produced by BBC and Tony Staveacre.
My music has all the primitive tango, from the bordellos until today, Piazzolla says in an interview taped before his death in 1992 and included in Mike Dibb's new biographical documentary, Tango Maestro. You can hear that underneath. On top of that music you can hear good music. But I think it's in my blood. I am a man of tango.
In The Central Park Concert (New York, 1987) Astor say:
This is the new music of Buenos Aires, the New Tango.
We started this music in 1954, my name is Astor Piazzolla, I was born in Argentina, i was raised the New York and my parents come from Trani, Italia.
This strange instrument you see here, many people said it's an accordion, it's not an accordion, it's a bandoneon.
It's an instrument that was invented in Germany in 1854 to play religious music in a church, it started in church, and then, a couple years later, they took it to the whorehouses in Buenos Aires, and now, we taking it to Central Park. It's a nice tour for this instrument.
It's not a joke, I'm not trying to be funny, it's the real life of this instrument, very surrealistic life, but, that's how Tango was born.
Tango was also, was always nightclubs, cabarets; like Jazz in New Orleans. It wasn't very clean at the beginning.
Today it's supposed to be clean because this is clean: people, free music and love.
Thank you very much, I hope you enjoy our music.
