Musical group the Gotan Project is starting to make the crossover in America to become a recognized name in modern Tango music. Here in Argentina, it's practically reached Fergie bubblegum pop status. The other day we heard the same Gotan Project album played at 6 different shops, partially for the benefit of tourists I'm sure. The name, Gotan Project, comes from Spanish slang in Buenos Aires in which syllables in words are reversed, where cafe con leche becomes feca con chele and tango is therefore, gotan.
