SYNOPSIS

My dad and I in TucumanIn the beginning God mixed water and dirt to create life.  Since then, fathers and sons have continued the eternal ritual of growing up and multiplying.

It is true that the seed needs the fertile ground to sprout, but the tree that results from that union, only grows and becomes strong because it knows that it is its destiny to give shade to the land where it germinated.

The paternal figure is alarmingly absent from the ethos of the tango, perhaps because of the circumstances of the period when it began its genesis without a father.

Not so in other musical expressions from diverse regions around the country.

Astor Piazzolla, raised in New York, brought the figure of the father to the tango in a very poignant way when he wrote his masterpiece Adios Nonino, in memory of his father who passed away in Argentina while Astor was working in North America.

  1. Querido Alberto: Que alegron encontrar esto. Hay semillas que plantadas en corazones nobles como el tuyo, florecen y se vuelven arboles que dan sombra a los cansados del camino. Adelante Alberto, tu amigo de siempre, lo mejor para vos y los tuyos. Escribime, estoy haciendo penias en New York y por ahi armamos algo.
    Horacio Laguna
