AllMusic Review by

Torres is a virtuoso of the small Andean ten-stringed charango guitar. Most of the cuts on this album are evocations of rural Argentinean and other Andean dances like the cueca and huayno, in which Torres plays with a wide range of folk-oriented small groups. This is charming enough stuff and well done. More adventurous are some urban tangos of very untraditional ilk, including a lengthy "El Dia Que Me Quieras" in tango nuevo vein.
