Follow Z V E Z D O L I K I ensemble into the abdomen of Buenos Aires, and meet ill-omened María, born with a curse in her voice on a day when God was drunk. Seduced by tango, she is murdered, but her soul continues to roam the streets of Buenos Aires. Anti-clerical, blasphemous, potentially provocative and certainly scandalous, María de Buenos Aires (1968) is a forgotten “tangoperita” by Ástor Piazzolla and Horacio Ferrer which translates the themes of seduction and fatality in traditional and nuevo tango, culminating in a hymn to (supernatural) deviance, lust, but also religiosity.
