“Exhaling Space”: An interview with Alejandro Rutty

Alejandro Rutty (

Listen HERE:

Listen to a conversation hosted by Cristina Baccin with Argentinian musician and composer Alejandro Rutty, currently Associate Professor of Music at the University of North Carolina about his new album “Exhaling space”, a project that musically portrays the basic need -but often forgotten- for space and breathing.

In this dialogue, Professor Alejandro Rutty walks with the listener in the paths of his aspiration to recreate a musical language that inhales South American folkloric genres and tango, and exhales a speech of his own. We invite the listeners to be open to a new experience in tango.
