Melingo is a Buenos Aires based musician and tango artist, his songs both deceptively tender and desperately catchy, with a brilliantly wayward cast of musicians to illuminate his vignettes. Tonight Melingo performs from his new album Tango Rebetiko (released March 2020) which completes the musical circle of his families ida y vuelta from Greece to Argentina.
With the precision of Borges and the bluntness of Bukowski, Melingo crafts atmospheric musical statements that transport listeners to a gotan world of lunfardo backslang, drug addicts, drifters, deadbeats and alcoholics. It’s no surprise Melingo’s tango bizarro sound has been compared to that of Tom Waits and Nick Cave.
