'The three young guys are first-rate musicians.' Daily News "La Piantada " is a new expression of tango, made up of three young musicians, who have developed a subtle language. They have adopted this language as a musical concept delivered at every performance. It is not a breeze to get the 'clue' to find the exact word to describe the music composed by these trio. If we go into the musical world of LA PIANTADA we will have the chance to see how the influence of classical and jazz music interact with the tango beat creating an unique and exquisite cocktail for the audience, a rare personality in the tunes which seems to surf into a deep dark ocean where 'experimentation' is the lead voice, the witness of a music style without precedents. And the evidence of it is the result of their first CD called 'ILLEGAL TANGO' which was recorded in New York during this past year 2005 including all original compositions by LA PIANTADA. With the release of 'illegal tango' the trio finally let their music out of the bag for everyone interested in catching on new experimental tango. A music which is felt to go against the grain, if you remember the traditional Argentinean tango beat. We have got to hand it to LA PIANTADA,for the tunes achieved in .ILLEGAL TANGO.. Theirs is a music that smiles to the future and let us rejoice in the present we live. Marcelo Domingues and Martin Balik studied at the Classical Music Conservatory in Argentina.
