With twenty years of experience, 34 Puñaladas is one of the fundamental pillars of the so-called generation of the '90s. Generation that fulfilled the role of rescuing the tango from its lethargy, interpreting forgotten works and, from the appropriation of the genre and the incorporation of its own cultural baggage, develop new languages that led to a very prolific compositional present. A renewed repertoire with a marked contemporary focus.
The first great contribution of 34 Puñaladas in that sense was the publication in 2009 of Bombay Bs.As., recognized at that time unanimously by the press as the most original tango album of recent years. This included the participation as a guest of the prestigious Brazilian singer-songwriter Vitor Ramil. The graphic is based on works by Juan Lorenzo, a prominent plastic artist who also integrates the group as a composer and guitarist. Several of the compositions included in this work were performed by prominent colleagues among which we mentioned the Orquesta Típica Fernández Fierro, Altertango, Cuarteto Julio Coviello, Ciudad Baigón, Nicolás Ciocchini and the Alvarez-Colombo duo.
In 2011, From the stock exchange to the ring, in DVD format. A concert recorded live in the Club Atlético Fernández Fierro, whose axis is the repertoire of Bombay Bs.As., plus a brief review of the group's career as interpreters. Julio Coviello contributes his bandoneón in the Tríptico del Riachuelo.
In 2014, Astiya is published. Fourteen original compositions plus the interpretation of the work Rojos, by Ricardo Capellano. The singer Victoria Di Raimondo participates as a member of Altertango.
As an unavoidable basis of this present, we point out the stage of the group's career as an interpreter, which is reflected in three discs published between 2002 and 2006: Tangos carcelarios, winner of the Clarín Award in the tango revelation category and also chosen in the same item by the newspaper La Nación; Slang, nominated for the 2006 edition of the Gardel Awards for Music, in the category "best band or orchestra of tango" and Argot, nominated for the 2007 edition of the Gardel a Music Awards in the category "tango new form".
