Orquesta Típica Sans Souci founded in 1999, aims at recreating the musical styles of the orquestas típicas of Miguel Caló and Osmar Maderna. With four bandoneons, four violins, a double-bass, a piano and a singer, it's like an orquesta típica of the fourties and the fifties. Some of these guys even played in the orchestras of the famous maestros mentioned above.

 


 

Since there were no written records of the original material of these orquestas típicas, they have taken the material straight from the original recordings, made between 1940 and 1951 by the musicians under the direction of Miguel Caló and Osmar Maderna, always on the basis of the arrangements specially created by Maderna, and sometimes also including arrangements on recordings that have never been edited commercially. With this, the spirit is to recreate, staying as close as possible to the Tango of the fourties.

The orchestra played at Tango Festivals of Lisboa (Portugal) in May 2003 and 2005, where it launched it's first album "Al estilo del '40". In 2005 the Orquesta recorded with the Dutch group "Blof". It has periodical appearances in different Tango venues and Milongas in Buenos Aires, and in TV and radio shows.
