Argentin: Aguirre & Williams.

Julián Aguirre and Alberto Williams are considered the most important founders of Argentinian classical music. The tango still didn’t exist, the bandoneon hadn’t arrived in South America yet, and so these two composers took their inspiration from the ‘payadores’, Argentinian folk singers.
