    The library prohibited – ATMA classical/Naxos

    Between the classical and the universe of the tango, and this new one is a godsend in this summer season. For this library prohibited where it is a question of Argentina, country of tango, the singer Sébastien Ricard appealed to the player of bandoneon Denis Plante and his Tango Boréal. This alliance, which works wonderfully, we’re taking a trip, in words, songs and music. More than a surprising result, this is a magnificent tale that is given to us, with its bits of poetry, and the enchanting universe of the tango.
