Explore the Forbidden Roots of Tango

Explore the Forbidden Roots of Tango

Neruda Productions presents Argentine tango band, 34 Puñaladas, at The Jazz Room Sunday, April 14th at 6pm. 34 Puñaladas recreate the authentic tango music of 1920s and 30s including some of the early genre’s gritty themes of vice, violence and bitter love stories.

34 Puñaladas is composed of guitar players, Augusto Macri, Edgardo González, Juan Lorenzo, Lucas Ferrara, and singer Alejandro Guyot. Performances by 34 Puñaladas are passionate and artistic and they remind us of the forbidden roots of tango music.

After much success in Buenos Aires, 34 Puñaladas began performing internationally at world music festivals in France, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Australia, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, and now for the first time, Canada!

Since forming in 1998 34 Puñaladas has released four CDs, the most recent of which, Bombay Buenos Aires, was hailed by the Argentine media as the most original tango album in recent cultural memory. Their CD Tangos Carcelarios won a prestigious Clarín Award for best new tango group, and Slang was nominated for Gardel Awards in 2006 and 2007. Like some classic jazz and rap albums, Slang, uses the language or, lunfardos, of the gangsters, reprobates and rogues.

Don’t miss this rare and awesome engagement with 34 Puñaladas!
