The Birth of a Legend: Aníbal Troilo

Today, July 11, we celebrate the birthday of a tango giant: Aníbal Troilo, bandoneón player, composer, arranger, and bandleader (July 11, 1914 – May 18, 1975). As maestra Carolina Bonaventura put it, “When one starts dancing (tango), you dance kilometers. Later, with time, you dance meters, and much later, centimeters, and finally, you dance Troilo.” That is, in the end, you dance the music.
