The breath of harmonics. Wang Li and Wu Wei play the kouxian (Jew’s harp) and the sheng respectively. An astonishing musical encounter between two immense artists of the oriental tradition, one living in Paris, the other in Berlin, who focus their skills on a different breath and time, on harmonics that grip the listener with telluric force. With its inspired use of the Chinese mouth organ and a multitude of instruments including the musicians’ own bodies, this is music that deserves to be experienced – the experience of a sound that is quite simply indescribable! © Harmonia Mundi

Tango: Sounds of the Río de la Plata

Rooted in dance and eventually becoming its very own artistic movement, the history of tango is an epic one; and its future truly looks limitless. A musical genre with hybrid origins, it remains one of the most incredible creations to come out of Río de la Plata. “It’s the only thing we don’t ask Europe for its opinion on,” wrote Argentina’s Macedonio Fernández, the man that young Jorge Luis Borges admired “to the point of devout and passionate plagiarism.” A number of coincidences in the late 19th century gave rise to this style of music. As musicologist Carlos Vega said: "no one really tried to create tango." And yet, here it is; complete with its own traditions and innovations, as well as its own golden age, ill-fated artists, myths and rituals.
