Día del Bandoneón

Tomorrow  marks the 99th anniversary of the birth of Aníbal Troilo, who many consider the greatest bandoneonista.  Pichuco was only 23 years old when he debuted with his orchestra on July 1, 1937, in Cabaret Marabú  at Maipu 365.

The national day of the bandoneon honors Troilo.  Tonight’s concert at Teatro Cervantes is a tribute to Troilo with two bandoneonistas from his orquesta, Raul Garello and Ernesto Baffa.

Here is the concert from Bahia Blanca a few days ago with Nestor Marconi.



Next year is the Troilo Centennial.
