Subject: RE: Meaning of 'The Coolin'
No surprise that Japanese people seem to be able to study deeply, comprehend and enjoy the products of other cultures. There are TANGO orchestras in Japan which are very respectful of the spirit of our traditional Argentinean tango (not the American or European rose-in-teeth military march called tango), who are real lovers of this music, and who are very frequently better musicians than ourselves. Here in Buenos Aires there are many classical, tango and jazz musicians of Japanese origin, but they don't count because they have been born or grown up in Argentina. What is amazing is the quality and soul of those musicians in Japan who have never been in our country.
