Tengo pal Truco was born in 2008 in Lincoln, Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is formed by four music teachers, Damián Balarino: piano and composition. Luis Hopúa: keyboards, accordion and composition, Gonzalo Villalba: bandoneon, guitar, bass, composition and voice, Carlos Passeggi: drums, percussion composition and voice.
They have recorded two CDs: "Tengo pal Truco" (2009) and "Son Buenas" (2013) with their own arrangements of compositions by Astor Piazzolla, Julían Plaza, Anibal Troilo (Tango) Eduardo Falu, Jaime Davalos, Daniel Sanchez (Folklore) among others, in addition with members' own works.
They have plans to finish their third CD in February 2017.
In "Son Buenas" they had the honor to record "Tonada de Otoño" with Cecilia Todd (popular Venezuelan singer) and "De Pérdidas y Reencuentros" based on Jorge Luis Borges` poem, with Amelita Baltar (The preferred voice of Astor Piazzolla ).
Its repertoire ranges from classical Argentine Tango and Folkloric compositions to works of "New Tango" (Astor Piazzolla) or folkloric roots contemporary pieces and own compositions by the group in which these genres are fused with jazz, chamber music and other Latin American styles.
Due the variety of the instrumentation and the repertoire this proposal could be included in many types of musical programs as Jazz Festivals, Chamber Music, World Music, educational concerts and, also, in "milongas" (Tango venues), the group could also be accompanied by Argentine tango dancers.
