El líder Aleksandar Nikolic dice: "Poco a poco nos estamos metiendo en una situación en la que ustedes, nuestra audiencia, extrañamos mucho, extrañamos a la comunidad y también tenemos que preocuparnos económicamente. No hemos encontrado la salida correcta de la situación, pero tenemos que hacer algo; hacer algo es mejor que no hacer nada.

Es por eso que nos gustaría tocar música para usted en nuestro estudio privado en nuestro edificio residencial en Belgrado, música de nuestro portafolio que sigue un tema. ¿Qué más puede ser el 13 de febrero de 2021, la víspera del Día de San Valentín, sino amor?

Por favor apóyenos compartiendo este evento, promocionándolo, comprando entradas. Convierta su sala de estar en una pista de baile, para dos o con una escoba o simplemente disfrute recordando milongas pasadas ".

El Quinteto de Beltango ha tocado más de 1,000 espectáculos en más de 30 países, e incluye a Aleksandar Nikolic (bandoneón), Ivana Nikolic (piano y voz), Antonija Barna (violín), Bogdan Pejic (guitarra) y Petar Holik (contrabajo).
