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.

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. After signing with Sony Masterworks in 2013, the band issued the 21-track Presente, an album that stood in stark contrast to its predecessor by returning to basics. Santaolalla's intense solo activity kept the band from recording, but they performed an international tour in 2017, followed by a vinyl reissue of their debut album.
