JUAN MAGLIO PACHO dies. Great musician of the Guardia Vieja. Son of an Italian father, they were calling him “pazzo” (crazy in Italian) because of his childish behavior, from that he gained the nickname Pacho. He was the first to bring the bandoneon’s solos to record. During his career he recorded 900 themes, mainly instrumental ones. He is the author of a few valses. Here you can listen to one of them.
