The Instrument Behind the Tango Argentino
The national day of the bandoneon 11 th of July was established in 2005 and is dedicated to the bandoneon, an instrument of German origin which gives tango its unique and haunting sound.
The best instruments were made before 1942 and are in short supply these days with the growing popularity in playing the instrument.
There is a Fueye Alert to keep instruments in Argentina.
Young musicians will have to wait for old musicians to die in order to buy a instrument made by Alfred Arnold (known as Double A) or Premier.
