ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In the immigrant quarters of Buenos Aires, the tango became farewell and memory in the dreams of its inhabitants.

Music of districts of ill repute and faraway places, a love ravishes a dance step just before the moon’s suicide.

Tango, song of rivers. Gardel and Piazzola transformed it into a bottle launched out to sea.

On its southern-bred staff lived a melody made up of rhythm and dream.

One late afternoon, it was discovered on the banks of the Saint-Lawrence River.

It stayed there, pulsating from four different instruments.
Like a harbour for seemingly endless voyages, “Quetango” arrives in the 21st century.

A voice revealing new and unforeseen sounds and timbres.
A music whose destiny is young, in which Québec City and Buenos Aires discover each other.

Peters at CD Baby


"Postango" is a delightful album which crosses all sorts of musical boundaries and takes the listener to a wonderful intersection of tango, jazz, and chamber music. Comprised of jazz guitar, cello, bass, and drums, Quetango is a mix of French-Canadian and Argentinean musicianship, and that multi-cultural blend lends some wonderful influence to these original compositions. From the electric guitar-driven jazz of "Erreur" to the syncopated tango rhythms of the cello-driven "Impro", which even has a few nods to the 70s prog rock of Yes, this album covers a lot of ground and stays interesting from beginning to end.
