Daniel Wallace-Crabbe on bandoneón and Daniel Rojas on piano together make up Oblivion Tango Duo, and there is a review of their performance in Braidwood, NSW in March this year, but first there is a brief look at the life and legacy of the last of the great tango musicians of the Golden Age, singer Juan Carlos Godoy.
