  1. 1. The Argentine Republic proclaimed "National Day of Bandoneon" on the Birthday of Anibal Troilo, July 11th Law 26035. Enacted May 18, 2005
  2. 2. The Argentine Republic proclaimed "National Day of Bandoneon" on the Birthday of Anibal Troilo, July 11th Law 26035. Enacted May 18, 2005
  3. 3. “Your majesty the 'Fueye‘ (slang for bellow), this Wagnerian bird arrived in Argentina because it knew Anibal Troilo would be born there.“ (Horacio Ferrer)
  4. 4. "There isn’t an old tango nor a new tango. Tango is one. Perhaps the only difference is between those who do it well and those who don’t." Anibal Troilo Caricatura de Pichuco. G. Arena Ba. Bca.
  5. 5. "The ‘bandoneon’ has seduced me since childhood. Since I didn’t have one, I used to practice with a pillow over my legs. When I was 9 years old, as a child's prank, I got on a stage and I placed a ‘fueye’ over my knees for the first time. I never removed it. It was love at first sight. “ Anibal Troilo
  6. 6. "Of all the tangos I composed, ‘Sur’ and ‘Responso’ are my favorites. In other words, the two I love the most. The inspiration for ‘Responso’ came one night while playing blackjack with some friends in my home; I... felt like I was not there. It was 4 am in the morning when I suddenly went to my room and started playing a few notes. ‘Responso’ started to come up! I think this is the best tribute we could give to Homero Manzi.” Anibal Troilo
  7. 7. Pichuco had a well-earned reputation as a chubby good man, helpful and generous. Zita, the love of his life used to say: "One day I reproached his working every night with the quartet, even though we no longer were short of money. He replied: "How are the singer and his six children going to eat? If I don’t work he doesn’t work either”
  8. 8. "When playing, the chubby man used to close his Asian eyes, forget everything and let the musses guide him to unknown hidden places until a strange force, probably the enthusiastic applauses, returned him to reality. He always kept the secret of his escape."
  9. 9. "Why should I go… if I am always coming back!"
