From 1991 to 1993, Craso Error performed versions of Argentine folk music in which the original melodies, removed from their harmonies and traditional accompaniments, were recast on rock-based textures with unusual rhythmic and harmonic contours. The results of this approach were presented extensively in BA’s independent circuit and can be heard in Promesas vanas, which includes 12 of these songs. Hear some samples through the links below.
