Roberto Besone

July 13, 1936 —


Roberto said, whiskey, when I took this photo.  He waited three years for heart surgery and now he can dance a tanda without gasping for air.  After dancing for 60 years, he’s not about to stop.  It was five months before he returned.  I asked his friend Nestor about Roberto, but he didn’t have his phone number to call him; that’s the way it is among the milongueros.  At least Roberto is back, sharing a table with his friend Nestor on Wednesday at Lo de Celia.
