MELINGO en cafe berlin, madrid
Like an illusionist straight out of a Borges novella, Melingo is back, with his voice, his clarinet and his sense of drama. Listening to ‘Anda’ is like enjoying a Fellini film with your eyes closed, losing yourself in a display of sound designed as a suite of baroque scenes in which each piece pulsates and destabilises us. In it, the original tango is reborn, a little as if Carlos Gardel was at the centre of a form of arty neo-rock fiction, with a gallery of characters featuring Erik Satie and Serge Gainsbourg among the spectres the Argentinian actor and poet conjures forth.
Melingo describes his music as “prototango”. Tom Waits, Paolo Conte and Nick Cave come to mind when you listen to him, and his songs conjures daydreams and images from films and adventure novels.
