Astor Piazzolla

I came upon Astor Piazzolla quite by accident, having bought his Sur el Viaje album in a Buenos Aires CD shop. I found out that he is the father of modern tango featured in works by Carlos Saura, Wong Kar Wai and Yo-Yo Ma.  I used two of Piazzolla’s tracks from the album: Vuelvo al sur (also featured in Robert Duvall’s Assassination Tango) and El viaje, the instrumental version of which is featured in the opening sequence at Niño Bien.   My composers added their own beautiful tango tracks, my favourite of which is Tango al meurte, the piece that closes the episode.
