TRENTAMILA cuori is the new, passionate project by Javier Girotto and Aires Tango. A disk that wants to be memory, denounce, remember. Exits in the thirty-year-old Argentine military coup, due to which thirty thousand people disappeared into nothingness; intellectuals, but also workers, students, all that progressive humanity that was evolving at that time. Girotto was eleven years old, but that period of his life remained in his soul. The same thing in the record, in thirteen songs, transmits all its evocative power. Of the terror that the military, but also the rage and determination of the mothers of Plaza de Mayo, of the cry of Nunca más. Never again. A strongly political accusation, an extraordinary record, marking the return, after four years, of a record of Aires Tango with the cd manifesto.
When in 1976 a military coup led by Army, Navy, and Aviation leaders established a dictatorship based on terror and violence against young intellectuals, as well as workers and part of that population of the progressive area which was evolving at that time, I was little more than 11 years old. I did not realize the age, what was happening, but slowly small events began to affect that linearity of my little boy's life, characterized by school secrecy, grandfather's band, a ball game with friends of barrio, lunch and dinner with my parents of simple culture, based on work and honesty, but far from the frustration that ensued in the innovative minds of those who began to struggle for justice and social equality.
Like a secondary school teacher who once did not go to my classroom for reasons of transfer to another town, "the principal said to us," but in the darkness of the corners, the whispered whispers and truncated phrases when we passed through the corridors, they sent me a crooked note in the monotone succession of mornings at school.
Or when I found myself on the road back home with my briefcase and all of a sudden a deafening noise from the sky came over me and the big big helicopters standing with men in military uniform who came down fast as black angels. With the fear that blocked me and one of them took me down in a door and only heard her voice screaming "stay still and not go out." I find myself in the house of strangers who, like me, we looked scared and frightened of what was happening because they were racking the neighborhood to surprise and capture the "subversives," screaming, shaking, and shouting.
I saw shootings in front of the house to take my neighbors with whom we used to laugh together.
I have seen my mother ask pity for a woman prisoner guard for her to release her friend. and managed to save her; but today, of her, there is only the madness of those days.
Along is the list of those I lost in the world around me and I still feel guilty about letting myself go to the soccer world (in Argentina) in 1978, while this was happening and not understanding the seriousness of the situation until fund (a world champion who tried to hide the terror of dictatorship).
Small big terrible events that have carved in my emotional growth an indelible trace of anguish .. And so, again, I cry with high notes the horrors of life: crying to the executioners for their madness, crying to give voice to the victims, those " Thirty thousand Hearts "" Desaparecidos "that Argentina, a land of endless prairies with poetic colors, will no longer have.

BIOGRAPHY AIRES TANGO
The band was born in 94 by an idea of Argentinian saxophonist and composer Javier Girotto, who inspired his own music roots and fondled them with the expressive modes of Jazz, creates a new musical ground. With explicit reference to the music of the great Astor Piazzolla, Javier Girotto with Aires Tango comes to a repertoire of original music in progressive evolution, both for the improvised nature and for the continuous replacement of the musical material. In the 95 Aires Tango are the interpreters of the soundtrack the theatrical performance The Witnesses (with Gianmarco Tognazzi and Alessandro Gassman), and the Banditi (by Mignucci with Ben Gazzara and Lumi Cavazos). In the 96, he released the first album record of the Aires Tango entitled Malvinas, from the Argentine name of the Falklands Islands (which were, not many years ago, the scene of an absurd war). At the end of 97 the second Madres (published by BMG - Victor), which resumes the stylistic discourse started in the first and brings him to further evolution. To note the presence of a string quartet (in four songs) and the participation of accordionist Antonello Salis (in two tracks). From 98 onwards Aires Tango participates in a large number of musical festivals throughout the peninsula, including Mediterranean Rumors of Roccella Ionica, Nuoro Jazz Festival and Fano Jazz where they share the evening with the group of Astor Piazzolla - Gary Burton; In addition, they began a series of live collaborations with several soloists, including Paolo Fresu, Enrico Rava, Gianni Coscia, Antonello Salis and Peppe Servillo of Avion Travel. In spring 99, their third record (Poemas title) is dedicated to great Latin American contemporary literature. Their fourth CD, entitled "Chronology of the '900", is released in October 2000, co-produced with the record label of the newspaper The Manifesto. The fifth CD "Origenes" is released in October 2001, always in co-production with IL Manifesto. The sixth CD (a double) "En Vivo", is released in June 2002; record recorded in 3 concerts Live at La Palma club, produced by Cam Jazz. The seventh CD "Aniversario" is released in September 2002, a record label of Buenos Aires Tango's eight-year life span and 11-year-old Javier Girotto's residence in Italy, recorded in Sofia (Bulgaria) with the Bulgarian Symphony Orchestra Orchestra arrangements and direction of Paolo Silvestri, produced by Cam Jazz. Two years later (2004) is the new project by Javier Girotto and Aires Tango and 8th disc. From the encounter of the Argentine leader with photographer Giancarlo Ceraudo, the idea was to musically comment on the splendid images of a photographic reportage. We find unchanged the melodies written by Girotto masterfully performed by the 4 members of the group. The rhythms, the timbre of their music carry us to this ideal trip to Argentina, passing through the improvisations that make this formation really special in embracing so different contexts, succeeding in fusing them into a calendoscopic twirl of emotions. In 2006 here is the 9th disco "Trentamila Cuori" is the new, passionate project by Javier Girotto and Aires Tango. A disk that wants to be memory, denounce, remember. Exits in the thirty-year-old Argentine military coup, due to which thirty thousand people disappeared into nothingness; intellectuals, but also workers, students, all that progressive humanity that was evolving at that time.Grotrot was eleven years old, but that period of his life remained in his soul. The same thing in the record, in thirteen songs, transmits all its evocative power. Of the terror that the military, but also the rage and determination of the mothers of Plaza de Mayo, of the cry of Nunca más. Never again. A strongly political act of accusation, an extraordinary record, marking the return, after four years, of a Buenos Aires Tango album with Il Manifesto Cd. The music Javier Girotto-Aires Tango faithfully reflects the tango melody and jazz improvisation features. The result is a sort of Tango treat, with distinctly Latin characteristics for melodies and rhythms that animate it, but less tied to the traditional Tango canons and therefore fertile ground for Jazz inspirational inspiration; in this way the Aires come to a music of remarkable expressive freedom and great charm, in which the echoes of the past merge with the instances of the most modern musical language.
