El mejor momento, me gustaba entonces y ahora al personal de Henry Soto-a.Lo pienso que es mejor que el papel de un personaje y Luis Ignacio Davida.Alguno que antes de esta serie está relacionada con la música popular gitana (en español), e incluso con que mas.Esa pasión por la música, la danza ... siento que su personaje muere, podrían inventar otra cosa.
