IMG_8139.jpg

The Beginnings: In March 2003 the pianist and music director Javier Arias created the Orquesta Típica Fervor de Buenos Aires (Fervor de Buenos Aires Typical Orchestra), in a context in which many young people were interested in tango orchestras and resume that typical orchestras tradition that had its golden age in the 40’s . Fervor de Buenos Aires was unique among the new generation of tango musicians, being the only band that took the challenge to continue the stylistic line of Carlos Di Sarli. In 5 years, Fervor de Buenos Aires released an album called Quién sos (2006) and made two European tours 2007-2008 (Scotland, Greece, Palma de Mallorca, Sicily, Austria, etc.) and made trips to Brazil and Uruguay, and It was the last band that played with the great singer Oscar Ferrari.
 

 

The Orquesta Típica Misteriosa Buenos Aires (Mysterious Buenos Aires Typical Orchestra), was founded in 2008 as a refreshing tango dance musical proposal, picking up the legacy of the great orchestras of the 40’s, their repertoire is varied and dynamic, and includes classic tangos, new tangos, waltzes, milongas, milongas-candombes and Argentine folklore. The orchestra is commited to further development of this genre, through new compositions and personal versions of classic tangos. Aware of the cultural and musical changes that have occurred since the 40’s to the present day, brings back to the scene a typical orchestra like those of “the old times”, but with the energy and the imprint of the new generations, being part of what some dare to call “the new golden age of tango”. Since 2008 the band released three albums, De Salón (2010), Una Noche en La Milonga (2013) and Tu Lado Acústico (2015), and made three European tours (20102013-2015), visiting several countries like France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, Poland, Czech Republic, also made trips to Brazil (Sao Paulo) and Argentina (Tucumán, Rosario, Córdoba, Santa Fé, La Pampa, Chubut, Salto, Trenque Lauquen, Pehuajó, etc). In Buenos Aires they appeared among others in the World Tango Festival Buenos Aires Exhibition Center, CC Torcuato Tasso, Teatro San Martin, Teatro 25 de Mayo, Milonga Chip, Salón Canning, etc.

LOCA will be their first time performing in the US.
