Bajofondo Tango Club (2)

The Bajofondo Tango Club collective is led by double Oscar winner Gustavo Santaolalla, who on Sunday at the Roundhouse performed his De Usuahia a la Quiaca live. This was the most memorable track from his score for Diarios de Motocicleta (sniff sniff).

Santaolalla also composed much of the music for Guillermo Arriaga's movies Babel and 21 Grams and worked with Ang Lee on Brokeback Mountain.

He doesn't look much like an Argie....but he used to.

Largely unrelated comment: The boludo en apuros mentioned in this BBC News story is Shakira's future father-in-law.
