GOTAN PROJECT

Tango 3.0

2010-04-29

With its third release, Gotan Project continues to meld traditional Argentine sounds with modern electronics to create a dynamic sound. From the reading of excerpts of Argentine author Jules Cortazar's novel, Rayuela, (in the song of the same name), to the liberal use of the bandoneon (an accordion-like instrument), there is plenty of Argentine flavor to this disc. Highlights include "La Gloria", which features legendary Argentine football commentator Victor Hugo Morales mimicking his famous "Goooooooal!" proclamation, but instead, he shouts, "Goooootaaaaan!". (It's awesome...check it out!) Another highlight is the song "Rayuela" (Hopscotch), which features children counting out a little hopscotch rhyme. I've always liked Gotan Project, but this release culminates into the best work they've done so far. Rebecca Ruth
