Gotan Project – La Revancha del Tango live

The Gotan Project formed in 1999 and is based in Paris. Their new album “Tango 3.0” will be released worldwide on 19 April 2010, but the Germans have to wait a couple of days more until 23 April 2010.

What I like about this song and video is the slow, stirring rhythm, which builds up and then quickly turns to the slow and stirring rhythm again. The video of the dancers reflects this also and showing the dancers in slow motion  is very effective. There is a restraint in both the music and the dancers, which creates tension, which is what the tango is all about.  The way the content has elements of repetition and multiples makes it more interesting.
