Bajofondo was conceived in 2002 when Gustavo Santaolalla and Juan Campodónico had the idea of bringing together a collective of Argentine and Uruguayan artists dedicated to creating “contemporary music of the Río de la Plata,” the river that separates – and unites – Argentina and Uruguay. Although Bajofondo is credited with pioneering the style of music known as “electrotango,” seven albums and 10 years of multiple tours later, this collective of artists have evolved into a band that creates a stirring mix of tango, milonga, rock, hip hop, electronica, jazz and classical that converge into their truly hard to describe unique sound and style. Bajofondo has toured all over the world, performing at the biggest and most diverse music festivals and venues in the world: Coachella and Lincoln Center in the U.S., Roskilde in Denmark, WOMAD, the Barbican Centre and the Roundhouse in England, Cactus Festival in Belgium, Pirineos Sur Festival In Spain, Pohoda in Slovakia, World Music Festival in South Korea, and many more worldwide. Bajofondo has won five Latin Grammys and two Premio Gardel Awards, Argentina’s most prestigious music award. The band is currently in the studio recording their new album for SONY Music to be released early 2018.
