What do you get when you start with the BABEL ORkESTRA and subtract a saxophone, a tuba, a banjo and a drummer? The answer is César Pavón on accordion. And here he is in today's video having fun with Libertango. If you want a little more fun, check out this BABEL ORkESTRA video and enjoy their unique blend of klezmer, paso doble, vals, gypsy, tarantela, tango, and swing. I love these guys - but, then again, I never could resist a band with both a banjo and a tuba player.

I would like to hear the full ORkESTRAL treatment of Libertango, but this is an entertaining preview.
