A cinematic landscape of grooves that only a genuine Argentinean bandoneon maestro and drummer could have produce, a patchwork of electronic tango beats meets acoustic instruments, flamenco and African percussion, in a way original modern Argentinean music haven’t been done before. Best described in the words of the master himself: “It is not enough to have the most melodious voice to intone a tango. No. In addition, it is necessary to feel it. One has to live in its spirit”. ‘Carlos Gardel’.
Fernando’s music was recorded in trips to Morocco, Brazil, Spain, France, U.S.A. and Argentine with the support of musicians like Tony Levin, Nirankar Khalsa, Daniel Melingo, Andrés Calamaro, Fernando Kabusacki to name a few.

The project brought together more than fifty argentine rap, jazz, rock, hip hop, tango, and experimental artists, among them Fats Fernandez, Jorge Navarro and Horacio Ferrer. In 97 he recorded the conceptual CD “Hal 9000”, together with piano player Mariano Gianni and bassist Fernando Nalé, making versions of old jazz pieces with the bandoneón and electronic music mixed with samplers of Kubrick´s film “2001: A Space Odyssey”.
