ORQUESTA TIPICA ANDARIEGA
We fell in love with Avanti after stumbling on Lontano and Buonasera two great and super danceable songs. After getting to know Stine and Luigi, we could only be more and more fond of their music and their style! What should you know about them?
OTA is composed of three violins, three bandoneans, piano, contrabasso and the enchanting voice of Marisol Martinez. They normally live in the Mecca of Tango (Buenos Aires) but have travelled and played around the world. La Orquesta Típica Andariega was created in Buenos Aires September 2009 with the idea of making a new danceable tango based on a solid foundation of classic tango. The orchestra prides itself on having a repertoire “bien milonguero” which means that their music is intimately connected to the milonga and is good for dancing!
Their albums consist of a mix between new arrangements of the most popular tangos, waltz, milongas and new tango compositions that preserve the rhythmic and danceable spirit of the Forties and at the same time add the energy of the new tango movement of the millennium. The director of the orquesta and double bass, Luigi Coviello, is also the composer of their new compositions, including the award winning "Avanti". Mariano Flores González plays piano, Gonzalo Lesta & Santiago Zamboni on violin, with Stine Engen & Anderson Perea Da Silva on the bandoneon. The orquesta has toured extensively throughout South America and Europe and regularly plays the stages and festivals in Buenos Aires.
