The years of working together in various tango ensembles triggered the idea for a duo, providing both musicians with the opportunity of demonstrating the full range of their intruments. Irrespective of the virtuosity and complexity of the arrangments, the duo's energy-laden music remains deeply rooted in the traditions of the tango. The style, interpretation and repertoire clearly demonstrate the influence of one of Argentina's tango greats - Alfredo Gobbi.
