Pedro Sanchez

August 27, 1935 —

Our Tango Chat happened to be scheduled on Pedro’s birthday, so of course we had to wish him a happy birthday by singing.  I thought it would be a short visit, but Pedro joined us from almost the beginning until the end.  Tango is his favorite topic of conversation so he loves sharing his life in tango with us.  We feel privileged to have long conversations with Pedro that are recorded.

His grandson Nicolas (27) was there, so I asked him for a photo with Pedro. Then later his daughter Silvia arrived at the house.  I have spoken with Nicolas and Silvia by phone, but this was the first time I met them on Zoom.  While listening to tango recordings, Silvia took the opportunity to film Pedro as he listened to El Abrojito by Orquesta Osvaldo Pugliese (posted on my FB).
