Diana Szeinblum: Adentro!

This lovely contemporary look at the irresistible rhythms and emotions of Argentine traditional dances is intoxicating — its simplicity is part of the charm. Three exquisite dancers and actors intertwine as they channel brilliantly interconnected passages inspired by such Northern Argentine dances as the Zamba — playing with the concepts of gender identity, machismo, and a coming-of-age innocence (many children learn the dances as children).

Composers and sound designers Axel Krygier and Simón Diaz are the invisible wizards behind the amazing musical mix, which draws on a wide range of rhythmic sources. One world music critic said Krygier’s music is like “Atahualpa Yupanqui meets Thelonius Monk, performed by Frank Zappa and remixed by Dopio.”
