In 2007 they published the definitive reference on structure of the Argentine tango, based on solid field and archival research. They watched and interviewed the scores of the old-time milongueros and systematized the knowledge in this unique book.

This book is an excellent help for dancers and teachers to sort out what and how to learn about the Argentine tango.

Argentine-born actor, radio announcer and performer Tito Licausi died December 5, 2008 in Miami, where he resided for years and conducted “La hora del Tango” on Radio Caracol (1260 AM). We’re paying a right and sincere tribute to a man who with his work has projected the Argentine image through the media wherever he has been called to act. He is the author of the book “Gardel is not a myth” that was distinguished at the Book Fair in Buenos Aires.

With more than 70 years as an actor, he has been featured in Argentine films such as “Nace la libertad” and “El juramento de Lagardere,” among others, and also worked for Radio WADO in New York.

We remember his voice and honor his memory in his final journey.
