Orquesta Tipica
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Nicolas Entel


Backordered

Orquesta Tipica started by accident when director/producer Nicholas Entel was walking through the streets of San Telmo - one of Buenos Aires' oldest neighborhoods.

"Just as many other Argentineans my age, I didn't care much for tango...until, by chance, I came across the Orquesta Tipica Fernandez Fierro playing on the street. First I saw twelve guys looking like wannabe rock stars pushing a piano down the street. Then I heard them play. Their sound was as elaborate as it was raw and powerful...filled with beauty and passion. It was love at first site. After that, I was also impressed by their political commitment and their understanding of music as a way of practicing cultural resistance. I also discovered elements which have been historically linked to counterculture, from Dada and cubism to jazz and punk rock music: all these components were present in their re-interpretation of a Typical Orchestra and Tango, a genre more than a hundred years old. Finally, it was very important for me as a citizen of Buenos Aires to discover how deeply tango was rooted in my unconscious."
