the guardian angel of chamamé, an Argentinean style of music that
he alone has brought to the world music stage and has seen him become a become a
favourite on the European touring circuit: Chango’s contribution to the
revitalization of chamamé can be compared to Astor Piazzolla’s

released seven albums and “El Chango: the very best of” collects together
the best from these plus four unreleased live recordings and a new composition
recorded especially for this album “Kilometro 11”.

Chango interpreting some of his favourite traditional compositions from
the likes of Cocomarola, Montiel, Isaco, Blas Martinez, Chavez , Tilo, &
Miño. CD2 features the crème-de-la-crème of Chango’s own compositions
including a track featuring Mercedes Sosa.
• A fiery and
sensitive virtuoso on the accordion, he displays an audacity rarely seen with
musicians of this genre. An exceptionally expressive performer, Chango
taps into a higher animating spirit, playing like a man possessed. His rapt,
dervish-like stage presence and his extraordinary ensemble make for music of
profound beauty and feeling.
