Renowned World/Electronica Group Bajofondo, Tuesday, March 19 at Bimbos 365 Club, SF
Date of the Event: 
Tuesday, March 19, 2013 - 8:00pm - 11:00pm

Renowned World/Electronica group Bajofondo will appear on Tuesday, March 19, 8 pm at Bimbos 365 Club, 1025 Columbus Avenue, SF. KPFA/Con Sabor DJ Luis Medina will open the show. Famed Grammy Award winning Argentine producer, musician and composer Gustavo Santaolalla, together with Uruguayan musician-producer Juan Campodónico conceived of a group that would be a collective of Argentine and Uruguayan artists dedicated to creating “contemporary music of the Rio de la Plata”, the body of water that separates the two countries. The project, which debuted under the name Bajofondo Tango Club, was an alliance of producers, musicians and singers that took shape in the recording studio, and the release of their first album was the culmination of this process. Bajofondo Tango Club was released in November 2002 and featured a long list of guest artists, including Jorge Drexler, Adriana Varela, Cristóbal Repetto, Adrián Iaies, Didi Gutman and Pablo Mainetti, among others. Bajofondo Tango Club won a Latin Grammy award as the “Best Instrumental Pop Album” in 2003 and has sold more than 300,000 copies worldwide.

What began as studio-based project combining programming and samples with acoustic and electric instruments has now evolved into a band that plays live with a minimal amount of electronica. Today Bajofondo is an eight-member group, with seven musicians and a VJ who triggers images in real time along with the music. As a result of the band’s musical expansion, Bajofondo has liberally added elements of Latin American roots music, moving their sound beyond “tango-tronica” and leading them to drop “Tango Club” from the name to simply “Bajofondo”. Bajofondo is comprised of Gustavo Santaolalla on guitar, percussion, and vocals; Juan Campodónico on programming, beats, samples and guitar; Luciano Supervielle on piano, keyboards and scratch; Javier Casalla on violin; Martín Ferrés on bandoneon; Gabriel Casacuberta on upright bass and electric bass; Adrián Sosa on drums; and Verónica Loza as VJ and on vocals. Doors open at 7 pm; Show at 8 pm. Tickets are $35 in advance and are available by visiting www.bimbos365club.com. Co-sponsored by KPFA.
