Coming from a new generation of Neo Tango music, and carrying natural virtuosity, Marea Tango is compris by mixed orchestation: classic and modern. Apart from the traditional Tango instrumentation like Classical Guitar and Bandoneon, it adds a modern line up that includes Drums, Samplers and Electronica elements, achieving a dynamic and explosive style of music.
The leader of the band is Martin Herrera, an experienced jazz guitarist, being these days one of the few composers of the genre. Marea Tango achieves an original and risky fusion, that showcases the best of traditional music combined with Pop and Rock genres, having Electronica as its main host.
In 2015, and with a great response, Marea Tango starts touring the US, performing at iconic venues like The Whisky A Go Go or The Rainbow Bar and Grill. Due to its success, the band is awarded by the City of Los Angeles with a Certificate of Appreciation, for promoting Tango music internationally.
Also in 2015, the band is nominated for the prestigious Carlos Gardel awards, the most important in Argentina, in the categories Best Tango New Artist and Best Album Cover.
The song “Overtango” is selected to be the soundtrack for “Mundo Afuera”, a digital Tv broadcast.
