Matias Fain (guitar and vocals) and Nahuel Perkal (chromatic harmonica, bandoneon, and vocals) began their artistic labor in 2016 within the “TangoRante” ensemble, with the singer Brisa Videla. Its main goal was to form a repertoire made of original arrangements of great classics, own compositions, and new compositions from fellow composers, both instrumental and sung. Many presentations where made with this group, including milongas and various concert halls from different provinces of Argentina.
With the dissolution of “TangoRante” in the early 2018, a new era began under the name of “Dúo Fain-Perkal” including voices and, in occasions, classics of Argentina’s Folklore songbook.
On August of 2018, the “Duo Fain-Perkal” released their first album, called “Etapas”, including some of the songs played by “TangoRante”. This material, recorded in the “Lomas Records”, was presented on their first European Tour in September of 2018, with more than twenty presentations in milongas and concert halls from Germany (Cologne, Hamburg, Berlin, Bremen) and France (Strasbourg, Saint Girons, Tolouse).
The repertoire offered by this duet, instrumental and sung, goes through different composers of diverse eras, including own compositions, having as inspiration the work of many musicians, conductors and singers of the River Plate’s art.
This spectacle could be presented in dancing venues, because of its music marking, and in concert halls as a music show.
On the other hand, both musicians are specialized in teaching Tango, giving group classes as initiation in Tango for Guitar, Chromatic Harmonica and Bandoneon, and also musicality workshops for dancers. In this way, they look to create an in-depth approach with Tango and its characteristics.
