What do you know about Argentina? What do you about her history and culture? Have you heard of Argentinian musicians, such as Mercedes SoSa, Astor Piazzolla, Gato Barbierei, Lalo Shifrin,.. or Lautaro Burgos?
Lautaro Burgos is a drummer from Argentina who lives in Williamsburg and has been playing in New York for some time He’s not only a great drummer, but also a very bright and enjoyable person to speak with. After watching this video, dear reader, I’m sure that you want to see Lautaro in one of his next concerts. You may also be inspired to travel to Argentina!
