From the Tangel Trio FaceBook page at www.facebook.com/pg/tangeltrio/about/

Born in February, 2016, in the district of Eixample (Barcelona), Tangel Trio is a Progressive Tango band led by three Argentinian Musicians:
-Iván Solomonoff, Piano and Synthesized bandoneon.
-Agustín Milton, Drums.
-Joaquín Luis, Guitars.

Iván and Agustín meet in a foreign language course and quickly decide to form a musical project together.

Iván would then propose an electric version of Tango, making the most of the argentinian roots of both.

On the first day of rehearsals with a friend of Agustín, a bass guitar player, they detect the lack of another instrument that could enrich the melodic lines.

Then it was decided to incoporate Joaquín Luis, friend and bandmate of earlier projects with Agustín, being able to keep the trio aspect, and giving more freedom to the piano in assuming the bass lines.

It was at that time when Iván decided to add the synthesized bandoneon, thus reaching their definitive sound.

The band starts adapting songs of the most famous argentinian tango composer, Ástor Piazzolla, which would finally turn into a commemorative tribute.

The varied influences of rock, metal, tango and jazz through the band members, unite to create a new musical genre: Progressive Tango.

Not long after playing together, and having a demo of only three adapted versions, Tangel Trio receives an invitation to participate in a concert for the Modern Music School, “Musical Wave”, in the city of Moscow.

The band decides to embark on this journey, resulting in a small promotion tour in some Russian cities, such as Moscow, St. Petersburg and Vladimir.

Right after coming back, the band continues adapting more songs, making some recordings, rehearsals and concerts in Barcelona and surrounding cities, such as Mataró.
Tangel Trio then receive various invitations for concerts at the south of Spain, during the months of June and July 2016. The trio would then travel to the provinces of Málaga and Cádiz, performing in a Jazz Club, a few Rock Venues, private parties and an art gallery!

Currently, the band is mixing and mastering what will be their first studio CD.At the same time, they are organizing the next tour for November and December 2016, which will take place in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Being only eight months old, Tangel Trio has adapted a total of fourteen musical works.
