"Siempre en la Trinchera"

Marcelo Mercadante & Juan Esteban Cuacci

THE RESISTANCE OF TANGO Marcelo Mercadante and Juan Esteban Cuacci met in Caracas, became good friends in Cádiz and decided to form a duo in Barcelona to make music from Buenos Aires, the hometown of both men. Marcelo and Juan play their own compositions. Marcelo and Juan make 21stcentury tango. If in the twentieth century tango was a hotchpotch of styles arriving off the boats in the port of Buenos Aires, tango can today be created in any other big city in the world. Such as Barcelona or Madrid, where Marcelo and Juan live, respectively. That said: Buenos Aires always makes an appearance. A city that forms part of Marcelo and Juan’s sentimental and artistic geography. As if they were back in the school playground playing out of pure pleasure and pure enjoyment, these two talented musicians, these two exceptional composers, return again and again to Buenos Aires, to tango, to unleash their desires. The result is a transatlantic project to enjoy on both sides of the ocean.
