Product Overview

Not wanting to replicate what their debut, "La Revancha Del Tango", had achieved musically, the group has a decidedly stronger emphasis on the organic roots of tango on Lunatico and utilized a host of local musicians from Buenos Aires; a complete string section, two emcees, a trombonist, and Argentine piano legend and long time Gotan collaborator Gustavo Beytelmann. The result is their most accomplished work yet. "The beats are sparse and liquid, and the transition from Buenos Aires bordello to European dance floor is seamless" - Rolling Stone. "A jiggy melange of tango with a dab of dub" - Entertainment Weekly. " intriguing blend of traditional, passionate tango with cool, contemporary electronica" - LA Times.

Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly - "[W]ith rich arrangements, smoky Spanish vocals, and unexpected flashes of eerie, erotic tension." -- Grade: B
Q (p.114) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[Lunatico] succeeds in sounding exotic with its sinewy rhythms, piano-led mini-dramas and the most voluble vocals of Cristina Vilallonga..."
Down Beat (p.66) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "More pop than its predecessor, each track comes decked out with a hook or two....LUNATICO is even intrepid enough to include the cinematic cowboy sounds of Calexico."
JazzTimes (p.113) - "Gotan's much-anticipated follow-up still offers beats, but overall it explores more folkloric elements....There's a lot going on..."
Dirty Linen (p.66) - "The way the group combines the alluring sounds of the tango with subtle shadings of dub and electronica makes for music that is stately, melancholic, and timeless."
