This line-up of typical quartet has glorious antecedents in the groups headed by Troilo-Grela and Federico-Grela. The combination of guitars and double bass with bandoneon provides that criollo feature in the color and essence of tango, without missing the beat of the genre which makes it a quite versatile group, suitable for the accompaniment of singers and dancing. The arrangements are original charts based on classic repertory of the genre and in original pieces.
