El Cachivache Orkesta is currently one of the most popular tango groups and is widely recognized on the world music circuit. Sometimes called 'Tango Punk', the group is characterized by its undeniably creative, original, and very “danceable '' style.

Some call them "modern buffoons", others describe the music as "communal flat groove", and both are true. El Cachivache serves up its music in a vigorous manner with a good dose of humor, mixing up overdriven traditional tango music with a post punk look, which simultaneously frightens and attracts the tourists.
Witty song introductions emerged with the music, livening up already energetic performances. The band is very popular in its home city of Buenos Aires, playing around 90 concerts a year.

They are presenting now their 8 album "Tiempos Extraños"  (2020) and preparing the next tours in Europe in May, June and  and July 2021. They are also shooting a documentary road movie on tour while traveling.

The band was selected to perform at WOMEX19 official showcase In Tampere, Finland in October 2019.
