Mingotan Project

During his 2011 European journey, Matias (Mingo) German, conceived the idea of experimenting with musical styles like jazz, klezmer, and personal original melodies, fusing them with Afro-Argentinian sound colors & rhythmic feels for dancing like tango, milonga, candombe, chacarera, zamba, chamamé, huayno, landó, festejo, etc.

Mingo has reached out to a superb group of international musicians to make his musical dream a reality: Rebecca Kleinmann (flute), John Stein (guitar), Evan Harlan (accordion), John Lockwood (acoustic bass), Matias Mingote German (drums).
