Bruno is a PhD student from New York. When he hears about Julio Martel, a tango singer with a marvelous voice, he gets on a plane and heads to Buenos Aires. There he will meet people who will help him reconstruct Martel’s life and his passion for old tangos. As Bruno gets closer to meeting Martel, he comes closer and closer to understanding why Martel sings, and the significance of the places he chooses to sing.
A deep and emotional story of Argentina’s past and present filled with music. A fascinating tale, even for a reader unfamiliar with Argentina’s (and Buenos Aires’) geography.
