(1914 - 1975)

Anbal Carmelo Troilo, known as Pichuco, the Bandonen Mayor de Buenos Aires, was born in 1914 in the traditional quarter of El Abasto and was recruited as a boy by Juan Maglio Pacho, conductor of one of the first tango orchestras in Buenos Aires, to play the bandonen. Thereafter he played in various orchestras until 1937, when he established his own ensemble. He exercised a strong influence on the development of the tango. Sur (South), one of some sixty compositions and written in 1948, presents a picture of a traditional corner of one of the quarters of the city. Troilo died in 1975.
