Bajofondo Tango Club is a South American music band consisting of seven musicians from Argentina and Uruguay. Often compared to Gotan Project, their music is a fusion of acoustic tango and electronic music, part of an evolving tango genre which is known as Electrotango; or Tango Fusion, which is greatly helping to bring tango back into the mainstream.
The band, which prefers to refer itself as a collective of composers, singers and artists, has a characteristic style that can be considered, besides the aforementioned mixture of tango and electronica, as an innovative form of Drum 'n' Bass, house, chill out and trip-hop. Their first record, Bajofondo Tango Club, was launched in 2004 with great success, with a second lone project from pianist/DJ/composer Luciano Supervielle greeted warmly by reviewers in late 2005.
