Editorial Reviews

Presente, the new album by the eight piece Latin Grammy-winning band Bajofondo is an epic, high- energy tour de force that blends tango, milonga, folklore, rock, hip-hop, electronica, jazz, classical and a world of sounds from the Rio de la Plata. The album takes listeners on a brand new trip that melds the high-octane energy of Bajofondo's acclaimed live shows and their ingenious experimentation in the studio. At this point in Bajofondo's career, they have long transcended "electrotango" to become one of the world's most eclectic acts on record and one of the most irresistible on the dance floor, all wrapped with the energy and attitude of rock 'n' roll. "After playing in virtually all corners of the world, this album most closely resembles what we are as a live band," says Gustavo Santaolalla, Bajofondo's founder/producer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bajofondo Goes Back To Basics March 5, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bajofondo's new album is a return to its roots. Unlike the last album that featured lots of guest musicians, this time around it's just the band. No Mala Rodriguez, no Elvis Costello, no Julieta Venegas.

The sound is more traditional and many of the songs are instrumentals. Plenty of violin and bandoneon. The album flows well because the songs are more alike but the lack of strong vocals really stood out to me. This time around it's more about instruments than lyrics. Excited to see Bajofondo perform these new songs live.

"Pide Piso" is my favorite song and I've played it a bunch of times already.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bajofondo amps up the rhythms! April 17, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the second album I own from this band and I truly enjoy the lively rhythms the band has put together on this album. Mar Dulce is one of my favorite albums and I was curious to see how the band would follow-up their success on Presente. I am in awe of their talent, and excited to include this album on my list of favorites. As I listen to album on the go, I find myself reaching for the volume button constantly especially when I hear the unique melodies mixing sounds of the violin, the bandoneon and vocals (at times). I am transported each time I listen to the melodies. Lluvia (track #14) is my favorite. I missed seeing the band live just recently but look forward to catching them on future tour dates.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best yet May 27, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is even better than Mar Dulce; and that is saying a lot. As good as Bajofondo is recorded, you MUST see them live to truly appreciate the incredible talent and energy of this band. I have been fortunate enough to see them twice now, and they were just amazing. Presente is a pretty cohesive mix of styles. There are some wonderful slow numbers and a really good amount of club-style tracks as well. All of them lend themselves very well to Argentine Tango dance; but Bajofondo's fan base goes well beyond the salon crowd. Well done, Bajofondo; and please tour the U.S. again soon!
