Rodolfo Mederos is a bandoneonist, a composer with an enormous oeuvre, one of the authorities on tango – and an inspiration to new generations of musicians. The artist thrives on his city, floating above Buenos Aires like an angel, his playing captures the essence of a gigantic metropolis that never sleeps and only finds moments of rest in Rodolfo’s music. His tunes are an inseparable part of the city and reflect its modernism and intensity. Rodolfo’s struggle for the tango – the lonely campaign of a man and his bandoneon – continues. The future remains uncertain; the only road open lies ahead. The audience – today’s and tomorrow’s – is already waiting.
