Argentine Tango School

“Amurado” by Osvaldo Pugliese y su Orquesta Típica, 1944.

Pedro Maffia, Argentine Tango musician and composer

Pedro Maffia

Bandoneonist, leader, composer, teacher (28 August 1899 - 16 October 1967)

He was the great stylist of the bandoneon.

Even in his physical attitude in the handling of the instrument.

As soon as he opened his “jaula” (cage, as also the bandoneon was known), getting rid of the spectacular creases of the bellows in fan-like manner...

Because Maffia did not have need of more air.
