As hardly any other musical style Tango has the ability to incoporate and assimilate new influences. My idea for this composition was an inter-cultural encounter between classical, Jazz and Tango musicians, to sound the borders between those styles and eventually to pass them. To repeat the process of birth of the Argentinian Tango, which developed as a completely new style from the inter-play between the European and Russian emigrants in the harbour of Buenos Aires.
