Buenos Aires: Combining the bouzouki with the tango

4An Argentine musician loved the sound of the bouzouki and decided to combine it with the music of his country, the tango. 73-year-old Manuel Ernandez Martin from Buenos Aires recently fulfilled the dream of his life – to visit Greece. In fact, at a musical evening organised in Athens, he played the tango on his bouzouki, as well as Greek music.
“In Argentina I have many friends who are Greek and I learnt the Greek language from them”, he told the Athens News Agency. “I love Greece and for many years my dream was to visit it. And now my dream has come true because of my sister, who married a Greek-Argentine, and now they have settled in Greece”.
