Tango Tales: all about Argentine Tango – modern, Golden Age, electronico, alternative

Antonio Agri, violinist

Antonio Agri - Conversando Con AmigosAntonio Agri - La ConversacionYo-Yo Ma - Soul of The Tango

The most beautiful tango violin to listen. Period. Antonio Agri, much like Horacio Salgan (with whom he occasionally played), is an artist of much wider range than traditional tango and Tango Nuevo.

Two first albums Conversando Con Amigos and La Conversacion (if you can find them) are the compilations of recordings with other great artists of tango. La conversacion has the unbearably beautiful rendition of Piazzolla’s Jacinto Chiclana (you can dance to this piece, if you dare).  He accompanies Yo-Yo Ma on Soul of the Tango, where all musicians except Yo-Yo Ma, are tango musicians of the highest caliber. This album is a kind of classic of Tango Nuevo and a must-to-have.
