Dutch International Tangoweek

El Cachivache

Bio and Occupation

El Cachivache Quinteto is currently one of the most popular tango groups and is widely recognized on the world music circuit. Sometimes called 'Tango Punk', the group is characterized by its undeniably creative, original, and very “danceable '' style.

Some call them "modern buffoons", others describe the music as "communal flat groove", and both are true. El Cachivache serves up its music in a vigorous manner with a good dose of humor, mixing up overdriven traditional tango music with a post punk look, which simultaneously frightens and attracts. Witty song introductions emerged with the music, livening up already energetic performances. The band is very popular in its home city of Buenos Aires, playing around 90 concerts a year. This year for the first time during the Dutch International Tangoweek.
