Decca and Surco Records are proud to announce the July 15, 2008 release of “Mar Dulce” (Sweet Sea) from Bajofondo, the Argentine-Uruguayan collective led by the two-time Academy Award and Golden Globe-winning composer of Brokeback Mountain and Babel, Gustavo Santaolalla. Bajofondo’s previous self-titled release sold over 300,00 copies and was awarded the Latin Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental in 2003.
Bajofondo will make a number of rare U.S. appearances, including a June 11 date at Los Angeles’ El Rey Theater. A string of summer festival and theater dates will follow in August with confirmed shows on August 3 in San Francisco at the Urban Grove Festival, August 15 at New York’s Central Park Summerstage, and on August 27 at Millennium Park in Chicago.
As on their earlier recordings, “Mar Dulce” sees Bajofondo’s virtuosic musicians lead listeners through a sensual soundscape of tango, trip-hop, drum & bass and pop elements that redefine the essence of tango for the 21st century.
This newest installment in the Bajofondo oeuvre features guest performances by Elvis Costello, Nelly Furtado, Julieta Venegas, Gustavo Cerati, Ryota Komatsu, La Mala Rodriguez, Santullo, Juan Subira and the final recorded performance by legendary Uruguayan tango diva Lagrima Rios.
