Gotan Project

Our post of Bajofondo performing Pa'Bailar inspired a number emails the subject of which can be summed up as follows.

Why not Gotan Project?

We're wwaaaayyyy ahead of all of you as we had mostly completed a post for each back to back and then had flipped for who went first.

Gotan Project are/is Eduardo Makaroff on guitar, Phillippe Cohen Solal on keyboards and bass, Christophe H. Muller programming beats along with bass and keyboards.  They are accompanied in this performance by Mini Flores on bandoneon, Cristina Vilallonga vocals, Gustavo Beytelmann on the piano, Line Kruse (along with two others I can't identify ... apologies) on violins, Fabrizio Genoglietto on the upright bass and Edi Tomassi on percussion.

From their 2006 performance on Later with Jools Holland.

Gotan Project.

Among the many, many, many projects of multiple Grammy winner Gastavo Santaolalla, the Bajofondo Tango Club is my hands down favorite.

The Bajofondo Tango Club, now simply Bajofondo, with their eclectic mix of tango, trip hop, house and whathaveyou stands among the most accomplished of the Electrotango groups that have brought Tango back into the mainstream of dance music and worldwide popular culture.

This is Gustavo Santaolalla on what I'm thinking is a Carvin, Fred Holdsworth headless guitar, DJ Juan Campodónico playing the triggered sequences, Luciano Supervielle on piano and scratching, Martín Ferrés playing the bandoneón, Verónica Loza is the video jockey and vocals, Javier Casalla playing the violin, Gabriel Casacuberta on bass and Adrian Sosa on the drums.
