Argentine Culture

To understand a culture you must go to its heart and for me Buenos Aires soul comes from Tango . Even though many do not listen or dance Tango you will find that if you spend some time discovering this genre your perceptions and feelings will change over time to this music until the tango comes back and finds you.

Goyeneche lo borda como nadie.
