Music in San Telmo

Music in San Telmo, originally uploaded by doraficher.

I took this photograph of this wonderful music group in San Telmo last June during my trip to Buenos Aires. San Telmo ("St. Pedro González Telmo") is the oldest barrio (neighborhood) of Buenos Aires, Argentina and also a fairly well preserved area of that constantly changing Argentine metropolis and is characterized with a number of colonial buildings. Cafes, tango parlors and antique shops line up the cobblestone (adoquines) streets, which are filled with artists and dancers.San Telmo's many attractions include many old churches, museums, antique stores and a semi-permanent antique fair (Feria de Antigüedades) in the main public square, Plaza Dorrego. Tango-related activities for both locals and tourists also abound in the area.
