Exchanges en fusion of tango with different music cultures. Episode 18:  Carlos Gardel and Hugo Diaz

In this episode you’ll hear original performances and arrangements by Hugo Diaz (the “latin Toots Thielemans”) of compositions by Carlos Gardel. When Hugo Diaz was a child he was given a cheap harmonica. It’s an instrument that’s often thought to be frivolous, but as Hugo was able make it work so well, he started performing on the radio from the age of nine. He has performed with countless legends, with a wide repertoire of pop, classical music, folklore and, of course, tango. You’ll also hear original recordings of Carlos Gardel from the albums “Best of” (Hemisphere 1998) and “Tango Argentino”, “The Star Collection”.

The arrangments by Hugo Diaz are from the album “Trio Hugo Diaz: Tangos” (Iris Musique production 2006). The performers are José Leonardo Colangelo (piano), Omar Murtagh (bass), and Hugo Diaz on harmonica.
