PEDRO MAFFIA is born, a great of bandoneon. He is the one who started to obtain from the instrument a sound very different from the one of the flute or of the concertina. To put it differently: in his hands the bandoneon plays exaggerating the musical phrasing without changing the melody. Together with other young people capable of reading and writing music he ushered in the Guardia Nueva. Let’s listen to one of his many creations.
