“Desvíos” 13 pieces for Speaker, Soprano, Bandoneon, E. Guitar & Double-Bass

Tango Music-Theater Composition by Marcelo Nisinman (Music) and Carlos Trafic (Text & Libretto)

(2006)

DESVIOS is a parody about the “PORTEÑO” (*) CULTURE and the rituals connected with the life and death of the human beings; Marcelo Nisinman’s music and Carlos Trafic’s texts achieve an existential trip of universal character.
“Desvios” is a short satirical Tango piece where each Tango is an universe in itself that can be played separately outside its context as an integrated work. It manages to gain a timeless and infinite universe achieved by means of minimun, but yet, essential musical and theatrical stuff.
This piece offers the possibility of being performed as a “whole”, in an aleatory order, succeeding in the creation of many atmospheres and situations, telling a different story with each combination but, nevertheless, being the same in substance: “THE UNREVEALED MYSTERY OF HUMAN MADNESS AND EXISTENCE”.
An Innovative vision of the music of Buenos Aires, a journey through the instrumental, sung and recited Tango with a “Lunfardo” (**) and minimalist tinted “Porteño” language.
