I am no sure how many of my readers are around London, but for those that may be interested I was asked to pass this on to you:
Bajofondo Play One-Off Gig at The O2
On 21st March 2012 Grammy award winning South American band Bajofondo will electrify The O2 arena with an evening of unforgettable live performances.
Formed in 2002, Bajofondo have put ‘electrotango’ firmly on the world music map, although their innovative sound stretches far beyond this genre to include; DNB, house, chill out and trip hop. The eight-man group is a “collective of composers, singers and artists” whose first album, Bajofondo Tango Club reached triple platinum. Since then they have gone from strength to strength, performing their live Bajofondo Remixed DJ sets at the biggest world and electronic music festivals around the globe. Their last gig in London at KOKO in 2009 sold out and their The O2 Arena performance is one of the hot tickets for 2012.
Bajofondo’s three performances will headline The Gaucho International Polo at The O2 arena in London. They will be playing a small set of six songs divided in three different blocks, two songs before the Polo Match starts, two songs during the halftime and two songs at the end of the match. This unique event will bring an Argentine festival to London, uniting high-octane polo interspersed with the music with one of Latin America’s most acclaimed bands. There will also be wine tastings from some of the country’s finest wine producers, brought to the event by leading authority, Wines of Argentina and after parties continuing late into the night in true Buenos Aires style. Adrian Sosa from the group has noted that ‘It is an amazing opportunity for us to be able to play in such and important venue and during these event that has a lot to do with our culture and Argentine tradition’.
