Buenos Aires street music

I was doing some shopping yesterday on Florida Street in Buenos Aires before heading to the airport for the flight home, and happened upon these guys.

They were using amplified acoustic guitars, and you can see the little Honda generator they used to power the amps behind the guy on the viewer's right.

Sorry for the image quality...I recorded this with my cell phone's camera.

It is great to see how these artists are not afraid of establishing themselves on the streets just like that and showing what they know about music and instruments. I find it inspiring. Last year I travelled to Argentina, and I rented one of those furnished apartments in buenos aires near downtown. All the musicians were in Florida street showing what they were capable of doing. It was pretty awesome!
