Ciriaco Ortiz

Bandoneonist, director and composer (5 August 1905 – 9 July 1970)

It would be absolutely impossible to transcribe in a music staff what he plays in his instrument.

It is a style with reminiscences of the guitar plucking of the milonguero criollo, which even though it has had no followers it may have much influenced Aníbal Troilo.

His most important composition was, no doubt, “Atenti pebeta” with lyrics by Celedonio Flores.
