Orquesta Típica Andariega

Playing live at the Saturday night Primavera Ball at the Sheffield Tango Festival, 29 April 2023.

Orquesta Típica Andariega con Marisol Martinez, ‘Siempre Es Carnaval’. Recorded at the Milonga Parakultural, Salón Canning, Buenos Aires.

Fresedo’s ‘Siempre Es Carnaval’ (It’s Always Carnival) was written as a condemnation of consumerism. From the translation by Tanguito, Argentine Tango Academy:

How many live in fancy dress,
without realising they’ll remain like that!
How many listen to themselves without laughing!
This world is the stage
of a big non-stop cinema
that makes us shop.
