Bajofondo Live this Sunday at The Mod Club

This Sunday August 17th, Bajofondo will warm the stage at the Mod Club with their beautiful fusion of traditional sounds of Tango and some of the best electronic and contemporary beats.

Led by Gustavo Santaolalla, this eight piece band manages to create the perfect Argentinian/Uruguayan music for modern generations. From clubs to old school dancehalls, their music appeals to all ages and always makes people move.

The name Gustavo Santaolalla might not mean anything to most people in Toronto. In Latin America his name would be equivalent to someone like Brian Eno.

One of the most prolific Latin American music producers in the last few decades, and two-time Oscar winner for composing the original soundtracks for Babel and Brokeback Mountain, Gustavo Santaolalla has shaped a whole new culture revitalizing Latin music into contemporary dialogues.

With Bajofondo (previously known as Bajofondo Tango Club), Santaolalla has put together an impressive ensemble of talented musicians who give their soul in each performance, making their live shows a very memorable experience.

I saw them a few years ago in Barcelona and I still talk about that show and how beautiful their live visuals accompany the music. After seeing Motorcycle Diaries last night at the Harbourfront, another soundtrack composed by Santaolalla, I can hardly wait for Sunday night.

Here's a sample of what to expect in their live shows:

I also love this video and how clearly it shows the perfect blend of the old and new.
