Tango intervention is a proposal born in Buenos Aires by the saxophonists Fabian Araya and Santiago Berros. Here, the objet trouvé is tango, which explodes, proliferates, decomposes, disintegrates and rebuilds, branching into minimal cells. A series of interpretive guidelines is the object of sound decisions, thus disturbing the supposed immutability of tango.
