. Presente Out Now On Sony Masterworks. National US Tour Wraps Up In Miami Tomorrow! 4/5: Miami Beach, FL @ North Beach Bandshell
Latin Grammy-winning band, Bajofondo have released their new album Presente, March 5th via Sony Masterworks. Presente is an epic 21-track high-energy tour de force that blends a multitude of traditionally dichotomous genres seamlessly. Gustavo Santaolalla, winner of a Golden Globe, 2 Oscars, 2 Grammys, and 12 Latin Grammys, describes the album as “a trip that takes you from the most magical to the most epic urban moments.”
Live at SXSW 2013
On stage, Bajofondo’s eight members use traditional instruments like bandoneón alongside live video mixing, samples, and scratches to spellbinding effect. The North American tour has offered crowds a chance to see one of the most acclaimed live acts in the world that recently drew hundreds of thousands at an outdoor performance in Buenos Aires. For a taste of Bajofondo’s live show, watch the NPR “Live In Concert” footage from SXSW 2013 and fans can hear the danceable “Pide Piso” (GTA Remix) stream where it premiered with Paste Magazine today or below.
Presente is Bajofondo as you’ve never heard it before! The band creates the contemporary sound of the Rio de La Plata, the river that separates and unites Argentina and Uruguay. Unlike previous efforts that dropped energetic dance floor bombs from the get-go, the new album opens on a low-key, string-based note: it’s the mysterious beginning of a brand new Bajofondo trip that takes the listener to the high-octane energy of its live shows and its ingenious experimentation in the studio. The production team of Santaolalla and guitarist Juan Campodónico have once again captured the common links and individual features of the music found on both sides of the river, but this time on a decidedly international approach that turned Presente into BAJOFONDO’s most ambitious album to date.
