CONCERT | 11 NOV. : MELINGO (Arg) @RichMixLondon

Melingo By Alberto Garcia-Alix
MELINGO (Argentina) : Eccentric tango poetry from the very source.  Sad, funny, intense, bizarre, fascinating… welcome to the quirky, twisted sweep of Melingo’s wry bohemian universe - a fabulous, boozy, theatrical milieu where Tolstoy, Kafka, Piaf, Brecht, Waits and Cohen might find solace and unsettled lodging.

He studied at a Conservatoire but retains little of that institution. In the early 80s he celebrated the sex, drugs and rock & roll lifestyle touring the world playing reggae, funk & rock. Then the 90s came and he discovered the musical roots of his home country: tango. His deep grouchy voice and his vividly sparse music well up from the world of tango in its early days. 
 Knives and romance, hallucinations, spiralling twists of the brain and undiscovered romanticism… his insolent, anecdotal songs take the form of thriller-like daydreams, with swinging bursts, shady noises and the grating, almost Dada-like echo of the craziness of a world stumbling on its last legs. A true tango original. "the man who makes Tango seriously cool!" (The Independent)
