Cañon is a “Tango power trio” from Buenos Aires, Argentina in which the typical rock trident (Guitar, bass, drums) is replaced by bandoneon, piano and double bass.
Particularly interested in the rhythmical aspect of their music, inspired by the tango dance and always searching for a more complex sonority, in Cañon bandoneon and double bass play using electric distortion over their acoustic sound and the piano player uses a kick drum with his left foot. The result is a combination of moments of orchestral sonority with others with the intimacy of a trio.
Coming from some of the most important youth tango orchestras of the moment Julio Coviello, Nicolás Di Lorenzo and Mariano Bustos started to play together in 2009 when they founded the “Cuarteto Coviello” and since 2014 they are playing as a Cañon. They started sharing stage with local Under Rock bands and now they organize their own milonga in Buenos Aires and play in small music clubs as well as big concert halls.
