SANTIAGO CORDOBA [ARGENTINA] @ Nº1 HARBOURSIDE – BRISTOL – UK

Santiago Cordoba, Argentinian percussionist of the well known "Violentango“ – ambassadors of the new tango movement -, has put on a different set of skins and strings to perform his solo concept "Corso“: a kaleidoscope of various percussion instruments, loops, samples, piano, guitar.....but most of all his musical soul itself.

His music is thoroughly composed, well structured, yet sometimes surprising in breaks or sudden interchanges, held together by a general elegance, a light pulse and Santiago`s intense way to play.

Some of his compositions date back to his pre-Violentango times in 2004, others are just recent – after all: "Corso“ shows Santiago´s personal developement, as a parallel universe to his career in the modern tango (where the use of a percussionist is still considered "avantgarde“).

After "giving birth to the Corso“ in various concerts in Buenos Aires, Santiago now dives into his first European Solo-Tour; well.... "solo“ is not always correct: the "Corso“ is open to guest performers.

* Violentango, one of the bands break most prominent stylist today, with which he managed to avant-garde fashion insert percussion in to the tango, recorded six studio albums and performed more than thirty tours in Europe and America, participating in important festivals Glastonbury Festival, Canarias Jazz Festival, Nisville Jazz Festival, among others.
