”Talent is the most important thing in order to make music. It only took a microphone and an orchestra to record the jewels that Gardel and the Sinatra did. The technological variety that exists now will produce a variety of art, and come when every kind of music that will suit the customer. I want my music to be linked to an object. Maybe because I come from a culture that valued the object: to touch it, look it and have it.” --Javier Limón, El Pais
