Binelli and Ferman continue to develop and further the appreciation of tango, milonga, candombe, and other Latin American musical forms in a unique bandoneon / piano partnership. Since making their American Duo debut in January 2000 in New York City, they tour extensively and have performed throughout the Far East, including the major cities of Tokyo, Beijing and Shanghai, as well as in Australia, Switzerland, France, Portugal and they have appeared in New York City, Chicago, Colorado, Dallas, Fort Worth and Miami in the U.S.
Their performances reflect the elegance and subtlety of the Tango, the sauciness of the Milonga, the romance of the Waltz, and the temperament and power of contemporary Tango.
The Duo has recorded the CD "Imagenes," which is available on Romeo Records and EPSA Music, and "ORQUESTANGO" , with the Montevideo Philarmonic.
