Now from bagpipes to tango. Kind of an unlikely move, but this isn’t your traditional tango. It’s tango with a bit of electronica, rock, and hip-hop.

It’s by the group Bajofondo.

He likes to call Bajofondo contemporary music from his native Argentina and neighboring Uruguay.

Guastavo Santaolalla is best known in the States for his Oscar winning soundtracks for Brokeback Mountain and Babel.

Now in a sense he’s going back to his South American roots.
