Muller & Makaroff (Gotan Project) present: Plaza Francia Orchestra
Plaza Francia’s debut album A New Tango Songbook (2014) featured twelve songs fronted by the outstanding Catherine Ringer (from Les Rita Mitsouko). The album was a media and popular success and was followed by an extensive tour in France and Europe - GOLD STATUS ALBUM in France.
New album “Plaza Francia Orchestra” on which the Maestros of Neo-Tango revisit "Las Orquestas Típicas" from Buenos Aires. Electronic grooves meet orchestral instrumentals with a twist of raw rock energy. Elegant and Delightful.
“We want to make all those people dance”. says Christoph H. Müller. “That’s one of the reasons we’re doing Plaza Francia Orchestra, because we see that the times are dancing to tango”,
Now, Müller and Makaroff’s instinct is to go deeper, rather than sideways.
The line up is completed by Paris-based singer Maria Muliterno, discovered by Müller & Makaroff (Gotan Project) singing Tangoes in the streets of Paris. Plaza Francia have embellished their corner of this universe with works by the famous Argentinian painter Antonio Seguí, as will guest vocals from Catherine Ringer and the Cap Verdean diva Lura, both as tango as they come. You could even call Plaza Francia a ‘concept’, like Bootsy Collins’s Mothership - an idea that blossoms into an entire world, where creative energy, raw sophistication, passionate elegance and careless melancholy cohabit and collide.
