Trifilio Tango Dúo
This dúo with more than 5 years of experience is made up of Maestro Ramón González on guitar and Emmanuel Trifilio on bandoneon. The Dúo addresses a repertoire that includes the great classics of the tango genre as well as original compositions that keep this centennial music alive and in tension.
