Chango Spasiuk



Tarefero de mis Pagos

Label: Piranha
Distribution in France: Night & Day
Release date: January 31, 2005

The passionate accordion player and composer Chango Spasiuk has transformed Chamamé – a marginalised rural dance music – into a highly elaborated artform. Its society is the product of a complex process of fusion and interaction between the disparate elements of its population: the original native communities (Mbyá – guaraní), the Creoles and foreign settlements established at the beginning of the 20th century like Changos two Ukrainian grandparents.

From a position of absolute openness and lack of prejudice, he produces a rich mix of contemporary sound and tradition, where one can also find the regional styles and rhythms of schotis, rural polkas, rancheras and rasguidos dobles.

“Tarefero de mis Pagos” his current and first international record is featuring this new sound: closer to his heart, closer to the spirit of the red lands of his roots, and closer to the people that live, work and dream in this spezial place.
