testimonios acerca del libro

“It is often stated that Tango is universal, therefore, let us celebrate this book and congratulate Maestro Hernán Possetti for it. I believe we now have a new and very useful tool to spread Buenos Aires culture throughout the world.”
“I have dedicated my life to tango. It is the source of all my joy and my livelihood. So it is gratifying to know there are works afoot that will carry on this work. I have no doubt in my mind that this fundamental method will convey the subtleties of expression inherent to our popular music.”
