The project MUJERES comprises tangos composed, arranged, played, sung and recorded by
The goal is to highlight the value of female work throughout the two centuries of the genre's existence, at a moment characterized by the rupture with the patriarchy that dominates the tango world.
Our aim was to build a team of female musicians that would respond to the urgency of a new tango committed to current changes in our society.
The repertoire includes tangos, waltzes and milongas, all written between the beginning of the last century and today, and revised to achieve a contemporary sound and dance style.
We aim to empower women and sexual and gender dissidences on the milonga dance floors, for there to be more tandas with female composers and voices, more role switching, more female and dissident DJs, more bands from the "collective"... All in all, more space and visibility for us and for everybody.
