Biography

Fernando Samalea is bandoneonist, drummer and composer from Buenos Aires. His compositions are a blend of tango music, jazz, rock, oriental and electronic beats. Answering trends of European artists introducing modern Latin music to affluent and intelligent audiences, come Samalea’s original electronic Tangos, serving a new twist, as if reinventing the dance moves created by ‘Carlos Gardel’ in the 20’s.

A cinematic landscape of grooves that only a genuine Argentinean bandoneon maestro and drummer could have produced. ‘Tango.ar’, his debut compilation album on (©urve)music™ will be out in 2006; a collection of his best works to date and was recorded in Madrid, Buenos Aires and Woodstock. Electronic tango beats meets acoustic instruments, flamenco and African percussion, in an original compilation of modern Argentinean music 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.
