I am proud that the band such as Beltango exists in the world, and plays the music of my father the way it should be played.
I was sincerely surprised when I saw and heard Astor Piazzolla’s music performed with the same sensation on the place so different from ours.
Obviously, my father’s music is completely universal, and Beltango proves it by their marvelous interpretations.
