Trivia

Producer and composer Gustavo Santaolalla admits that, prior to "Café de los Maestros", his knowledge of classic/vintage tango music was very limited. His idea with the film was to learn the musical roots and traditions of the genre as well as to pay tribute to some of the great stalwarts (composers, arrangers, musicians, singers, most of them pushing or past 80 years old) of tango music.

A must-see for lovers of Rio de la Plata tango and culture.
4 February 2009 | by (Rome, Italy) – See all my reviews

Of course , enthusing about something to a fellow enthusiast is easier than to a newcomer. I'm an old enthusiast of tango music and tango dance , so my opinion could be a party-opinion. As to the scarce presence of dance in the film, I would say the following: Since 1984 we have been seeing tango-shows on the stages of Europe, USA, Asia and Australia. In these shows , in the foreground always there were dancers who presented a tango spectacularized ,choreographied , the so-called "tango for export". People thought that they were seeing the popular dance of Buenos Aires , nothing more wrong. When we , tango lovers, started to travel to Buenos Aires, realized that "social tango" (as they call it) is completely different. That's why, today,it was rightful to give an homage to the "Great Olds" of the tango music, exactly how "Buena Vista Social Club" made with the cuban "Great Olds". To the beauty of tango music is due the revival of tango dance in the world and we are dancing , in Europe, in USA , everywhere, to the recordings made in the thirties, forties and fifties in Bs As. Personally,it was touching to see how these musicians and singers, through their performances on the stage and through their words out of stage, transmitted their big passion and love for tango. In the movie there are also moments of danced tango with the possibility of seeing the different ways of dancing tango, more traditional, more embraced and also the so-called "tango nuevo". Finally, I would have never imagined that the idea for this film could occur to Gustavo Santaolalla ,who, in the last years, were producing ,through his group "Bajo Fondo Tango Club", what they called "tango electronico" and what he defined , last year on an interview to the "New York Times",as "contemporary music inspired to the urban atmospheres of Buenos Aires and Montevideo". Thank you, Gustavo.
