El Juntacadáveres
8 May 2014, Thursday
Just a dozen years after the Gotan Project - building on electronic foundations - revolutionized tango, a new chapter has begun in the history of the genre. The "responsibility” in this case rests on Argentine Enrique "Kike” Noviello, who moved from Buenos Aires to Antwerp in 2002, where - having surveyed the local scene - he founded his group El Juntacádaveres. Enrique always had in interest in multiple genres, and as a child was already just as excited by bebop as by tango. It's no wonder, then, that El Juntacádaveres has made its mark as the most radical tango fusion outfit on the scene, creating a brand new sound with its amalgam of tango, jazz, hip-hop, rock and Latin dance music styles. In the past two years the band has scooped several awards in Belgium, initially winning the opportunity to open for the Gotan Project. After the appearance of its debut album De Platino, however, it has now become the focus of attention. And this is certainly no accident, as the band brings a combination of explosive energy, astonishing twists and turns, and irresistible humour to the stage. What's more, this emanates not from any laptop, but from its eight brilliant musicians: two bandoneón players, two guitarists, pianist, saxophonist, drummer and rapping DJ. Rousing like tango, provocative like the novel by Juan Carlos Onetti which lends the band its name, the end result is always captivating dance music, the like of which we've never heard - until now.
