Artist's Description

My brother Javier Casalla

*Javier Casalla – Tango

  1. In this first solo album, Javier Casalla pays homage to the role of the violin in Argentine tango and to the sound of a whole era. Although his musical scope ranges from rock and folk to jazz and classical music, tango became his passion. "It was inside of me and always came to me easily in all styles, traditional or modern" he says.
  1. Amongst his violins, the most important one for this disc is without question his violin corneta, the Stroh violin, a unique-sounding instrument nearly forgotten before Casalla rediscovered it for the genre and uses it to "sing" the melodies.
  1. The album is produced by Surco label founder and multiple Latin Grammy Award-winner Gustavo Santaolalla who is enjoying continuously growing international success as producer and/or bandmember of acts such as Juanes, Molotov and Bajofondo Tangoclub as well as as soundtrack composer (Motorcycle Diaires, 21 Grams amongst others).
  1. Casalla’s recent tango projects include names such as Cristóbal Repetto and Cafe de los Maestros. He is part of Latin Grammy-winning act Bajofondo Tangoclub and played on Mercedes Sosa’s latest folk album Corazón Libre.
  1. He is also featured on numerous soundtracks: The Motorcycle Diares, Carlos Saura’s Tango, 21 Grams, Amores Perros, and others.
  1. The album features vocal guest appearances by Cristóbal Repetto (recently named "the new and addictive voice for Argentinian tango" by the BBC Music Magazine) and Daniel Melingo, the bohemian star of new tango.
