Bonjour mes amis, voilà que je vous envoie un texte de présentation por l’Ensemble Acalanto, merci de bien vouloir l’introduir dans votre page.
Rafael Azocar

“Une chanson couvée dans les pulsions de la terre de l’Amérique, c’est à dire, avec les instruments les plus authentiques de l’identité Américaine et résister activement à la musique commerciale sans se laissant séduire par le chant du cygne de la machine impérialiste. Créer l’espace mental et culturel à la Révolution, à l’épanouissement des forces progressistes de l’humanité, à la justice sociale, à une paix entre les hommes.”
