From its origins, Finisterre has understood tango as an versatile genre, which can invite to dance and at the same time be a music with all the elements and exponents to enjoy in concert. In this line, the group interprets a vast repertoire of their own compositions that allows them to insert themselves in large stages and festivals as well as milongas. Finisterre has performed in most of Buenos Aires milongas and tango festivals. It has taken his music to the most important tango concert halls in the city, such as the Sala Argentina of the Kirchner Cultural Center, the Verdi theater, Orlando Goñi theater, CAFF and Torquato Tasso, and renowned venues such as the San Martín Cultural Center, the Parque Centenario Amphitheater and Casa del Bicentenario, among others. In 2013 it was selected for the “Bares Notables” Cycle, performing at the traditional bar La Biela, in La Recoleta neighborhood. The same year Finisterre recorded his first album in ION, mythical studios of Buenos Aires, starting presentations of it in different spaces. During January 2014 Finisterre made its first tour outside the country, in Uruguay, making several presentations with great reception in different cities, including participation at the main stage of the International Musicians Encounter “Jazz a la Calle”, in the city of Mercedes.

It has several collaborations in the world of visual arts, among which “Pichuco” (Puente Films), a documentary about the work of Aníbal Troilo, which officially premiered in several countries simultaneously on July 11th, 2014, at the 100th anniversary birth of the great bandoneonist (http://vimeo.com/54639764).

During the years 2016 and 2017, they made their first two European tours, which led them to present themselves with great success in many places of Germany, Switzerland, Holland and Austria.

On the return of the second tour they finalize the production of their second album POPULAR, which was recorded at the ION studios and it is presented at the main stages of the City of Buenos Aires with full room, recognizing the group as one of the main exponents of the new tango movement of the 21st century.
