Victorio Menghi has developed a genre he calls Tango Fussion. Tango Fussion combines the music of Buenos Aires with many other world musical influences, creating an experimental journey that combines the beautiful melodies and passion of the tango with electronica, pop, rock, folk and symphonic music. Tango Fussion displays Menghi's unique vision of combining the music of his homeland with genres from across the musical spectrum. His first cd features an array a special guests from Argentina and other countries.
Tango Fussion was launched in the artist's homeland of Argentina, where he studied composition and tango guitar. He holds degree of "Electro acoustic Composition" by the National University of Quilmes and the degree of "Superior Instrumentalist specialized in Tango" by the School of Popular Music
of Avellaneda, Buenos Aires.The CD and DVD has been released by the label b, m, v, manufactured and distributed by the multinational EMI.
Menghi has since taken his distinctive style to Brazil, Colombia and Chile [ playing for 80.000 people] and is now in the United States. In Washington, D.C., he was recently interviewed by Univisión, Telemundo, New York 1 Noticias and the Washington Post. His travel to United States was sponsored by the Department of Music
of the Chancellery Argentina.
The Buenos Aires native believes that mixing cultures is healthy for the future of humanity, contributes to world peace; while at the same time preserving our own native art influences. "This means that if you were born in Buenos Aires, like I was, you should love and try to preserve the cultural environment where you grew up," he says. His unique style is indeed infused with the tango, but in a fresh and powerful original style, supported by solid technique and a silky voice. His music is absolutely original and his live performances generate a kind of "fievre".
