La Runfla is formed by three guitarists and a lady vocalist. This project comes up at the end of 2017, with the purpose of exploring Tango music and its possibilities. Since then, the group has been focused in making its own arrangements, taking account of the fundamental roots of traditional dancing Tango, without leaving behind modern aesthetics and contemporary musical works. Therefore, its repertoire it’s conformed by classic tango, as well as by the contemporary Tango composition stream.
La Runfla makes its official debut in the month of July of 2018, in the “J.J Circuito Cultural”. Ever since, the group has been invited to take part in both private and popular Tango gatherings, such as “Festival de Tango de Boedo”, “Festival de Tango de Valentín Alsina”, “La semana de Boedo”, “Bohemia Tanguera”, “Almagro tiene Tango”, and in several “milongas” of Buenos Aires and the rest of the country. Exclusive presentations have taken place too, such as those at “Galpón B”, “Tano Cabrón” and “Club Atlético Fernandez Fierro”.
On August of 2018, they recorded and published their first EP, in the “Del Parral” Studios, and filmed their first video, “Yuyo Verde”, by “NAP Contenidos Audiovisuales”.
Their first Tour took place this January, in the Patagonia (Argentina’s South region), and it was declared to be of Cultural Interest by the Government of San Carlos de Bariloche. During this tour, many gigs took place on local official events, exclusive hotels and restaurants, and various “milongas” and local bars. They were also invited to participate in the Radio Show “Busca2” in Bariloche.
During April 2019, they recorded their first full length studio album titled “No es lo que parece” (translated as “it’s not what it seems”), and filmed a promotional video of the tango “Suerte Loca”. The official presentation took place on October 24, in “Club Atlético Fernández Fierro” to a full house, and acclaimed by the critics and specialized audience.
During the lockdown of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the group focused on producing new music, making new arrangements of Tango classics and contemporary Tangos, and recording the video of «Gota de Lluvia», when the lockdown was absolute. In 2021, gigs were already possible in Buenos Aires, so the group started playing again, closing the year in «Club Cambalache», with great guests as Vicky Di Raimondo, «La Polaca» Grabinsky, and Tomi Lago. Also, they recorded a live session, of the tango by Manzi and Cedrón, «Palabras sin importancia», released on December 2021.
