Good news for lovers of strong emotions and subtle gems: Cáceres is back with his requisite songs.
Cáceres, the lion, is an historian, musicologist and lecturer who has made an in-depth study of the political and cultural origins of the River Plate.
Officially a teacher of painting and the visual arts, and also a pianist and trombonist, his divine madness lies in cultivating tango, milonga, candombe and murga, the popular genres that are the result of Afro-European fusion.
Cáceres, the ardent songster, is the living incarnation of the object of his interest, the fullest expression today of his studies.
A compulsive creator and quintessentially impassioned artist, his work transmits the lightning flash of pagan fervour.
On the banks of the River Plate, right now, murga is making its comeback.
Cáceres is the central figure and natural leader of the new murgueros: he carries the torch, he’s writing the story.
