El Cachivache

El Cachivache is also back again and this time for 4D tango. Five men with beards, sunglasses and impressive tattoos perform tango music with a nice dose of humor. We welcome them like old friends!

El Cachivache Quinteto is currently one of the most popular tango groups and is widely recognized on the world music circuit. Sometimes called ‘Tango Punk’, the group is characterized by its undeniably creative, original, and very “danceable ” style.
Some call them “modern buffoons”, others describe the music as “communal flat groove”, and both are true. El Cachivache serves up its music in a vigorous manner with a good dose of humor, mixing up overdriven traditional tango music with a post punk look, which simultaneously frightens and attracts the tourists.
Witty song introductions emerged with the music, livening up already energetic performances. The band is very popular in its home city of Buenos Aires, playing around 90 concerts a year.​​

The band was selected to perform at WOMEX19 official showcase In Tampere, Finland in October 2019.
