"Buenos Aires’ hottest new tango band brings incredible energy and excitement to this passionate traditional music. This all-acoustic group revel in raw, adrenalin-soaked emotion, adding a daring, youthful edginess to create their own vision of tango. The sounds of Astillero are the sounds of Buenos Aires today. The way they play their music reflects the incongruities and madness of this urban jungle; it kicks, breaks, hurts and jumps. The fresh lyrics add to the rawness – a rough but tender voice, that cares and tears at the same time."
