Trio Garufa are set to release El Rumor De Sus Tangos on June 19, 2012. The group are regarded as one of the foremost interpreter of Argentine Tango in recent times. The group is international in it’s make up but play a very authentic take on Argentine music. They are something of a throwback to the golden age of tango—playing music from the 1930 through the 1950s. But they also play modern Tangos.
They are based in the USA but play regularly at milongas in Buenos Aires—which is uncommon.
The band indeed, have their origin in milongas in the USA. A San Francisco producer wanted live music at his events and they got together to perform once a month. The stuck together and developed a following and offers to play flooded in. Since they (2001) Trio Garufa have toured extensively in the USA and Canada (as well as, later, in Argentina).
