¡Bailemos Tango!

Tango is a song. Tango is a dance. Tango is a way of life. It is a tradition imbued with nostalgia, poetry, and the vitality of a country that gave birth to it in the dark, immigrant corners of its capital city, Buenos Aires.

¡Bailemos Tango! A Century of Tango on the Dance Floor was compiled by Argentinean salon-style Tango dancers and devoted Tango aficionados who hold a deep passion for Tango as well as an understanding of its intricacies. Including instrumental and vocal Tango, Valses, Milongas, and Canyengue, the tracks here span 1920-1990 and are all still popular at historic dance clubs frequented by local habitués in Buenos Aires.

Delfino Guerrero

A new generation of Musicians forms the label Café Caliente (Hot Coffee). One of those extraordinary musicians is Delfino Guerrero. His search for an authentic and personal sound took him through the path of understanding his roots, which are based in the jarocho culture, original from the state of Veracruz, Mexico. The result is a fortunate and delicious combination of virtuosity, jarochan tradition and contemporary vocation in which a new acoustic-electric concept unfolds.

Quetzalcóatl

"The remarkable thing about Quetzalcóatl is that their music 'talks' to our roots as human beings...
It goes from their hearts to ours."
-- Edward James Olmos
