Bajofondo, formerly known as Bajofondo Tango Club, is an Argentine-Uruguayan tango fusion collective led by Grammy-winning producer Gustavo Santaolalla. In general, the collective fuses acoustic tango with electronic music, resulting in a contemporary style representative of the Rio de la Plata music scene in the 21st century. Led by Santaolalla (guitar, percussion, vocals), whose production credits include such luminous Latin acts as Juanes, CafÃ© Tacuba, and Julieta Venegas, Bajofondo is also comprised of Juan CampodÃ³nico (programming, beats, samples, guitar), Luciano Supervielle (piano, keyboards, scratching), Javier Casalla (violin), MartÃn FerrÃ©s (bandoneon), Gabriel Casacuberta (upright bass, electric bass), AdriÃ¡n Sosa (drums), and VerÃ³nica Loza (VJ, vocals). They made their full-length album debut in 2002 with Bajofondo Tango Club on Santaolalla's Universal Music-affiliated boutique label, Surco Records. Subsequent albums include Bajofondo Tango Club Presenta: Supervielle (2004), Remixed (2006), and Mar Dulce (2007), the latter featuring an all-star list of guest features (most notably Gustavo Cerati, Nelly Furtado, Mala RodrÃguez, Juan SubirÃ¡ [of Bersuit Vergarabat], Elvis Costello, and on the 2008 deluxe edition, Julieta Venegas). In addition to their album releases, Bajofondo also releases club-oriented 12" EPs and tours internationally. ~ Jason BirchmeierPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
