“The bandoneón is an instrument that carries a lot of history. It was born in Europe in the middle of the 19th century and later on adopted to Argentina and Uruguay. The instrument has a wide range in its diversity due to its roots in church music and its journey through the waters of Rio de la Plata. Although the instrument today is mostly associated with the tango, its qualities have contributed also in other genres.”
