Rescuing the black origins of Buenos Aires music and “Rioplatense” region , " Black Milongas ", gives us a special and particular sound. The original black slaves percussion , the guitars, a“cayenguera” voice joined to the expressiveness of the clarinet (native of the Central European immigrants) plus some brushstrokes of bandoneón and acordeón give a different style to Buenos Aires music. "Black Milongas” recreates, with his almost tribal march of percussion, the classic ones installed in our imaginary popular one, leaving an important space to the new compositions.
Also participated in writing the CD MILONGAS BLACK Victor Murstein in Clarinet, Rubén "Mosca" Bloise in percussion; Rodrigo Mercado in bandoneón and Ivan Mackiavelo in candombe´s drums.
