If you are fortunate, perhaps once in your lifetime the door will be opened for you to an experience like the one in today's video. A tiny bar. Four customers. Two musicians until the bartender pulls out his violin and starts to play. It's hot and smokey but the music is so real, it will return in your dreams. It could be anywhere in the world but this one is quintessentially in Japan - perhaps not the most likely spot in the world to find a beautiful young woman playing the bandoneón (and playing it well) but that is part of the charm of the video.
Google translates the title on the video to something like Gorilla Orchestra Libertango 2010. I wish I knew more, but I don't.
There is a second video, perhaps even more evocative, of Por una cabeza. Please watch it also and enjoy the "yaaaahs".
