What's on my desk

My passion is tango music and dancing. This is a clip from my favorite tango musician, a virtuoso bandoneonist, Astor Piazzolla, playing his most famous composition, Adios Nonino.

I frequently listen to his music while working. Astor Piazzolla revolutionized the traditional tango into a new style termed nuevo tango, incorporating elements from jazz and classical music.
