Melingo

Tango! Tango canciòn! Maldito tango! MELINGO is an Argentinean phenomenon: a bohémien from Buenos Aires, a tango & milonga maestro who of course comes across as enthralling. Those who like their music subtle and playful, and can also appreciate a Paolo Conte, will be sure to fall for this pure-bred performer. Following a varied past (also with rock and punk acts), in 2004 the surprising CD 'Santa Milonga' suddenly appeared - and in spring 2008 the new 'Maldito Tango' (on the Manaña label of Gotan Project...
