Peter van Breugel made a video of the recording of Sencillo in De Toonzaal on 10 October 2015
Bandoneon player and composer Gerard van Duinen fantasized about it for years: recording his own music for a full tango orchestra. Such an orquesta típica is like an big band in jazz: many musicians and logistical issues... outdated! But the sound of a group like that is overwhelming and irresistible.
In the year he turned 50 Gerard decided to go for it. He found another nine great tango musicians and founded Orquesta Típica Mala Pinta. Through crowdfunding he got supported by 124 tango lovers. Sencillo was recorded on October 10th 2015, partly before a live audience.
With only new music Sencillo became a unique album. Even though playing tango is becoming popular with musicians worldwide, too often the golden classics from the '40's are just being re-recorded nowadays. Sencillo is a statement: the world needs new (danceable) tango music.
