Cacho Tirao

Accustomed to Roberto Grela and the old time guitarists, when he played tangos Ccaho listened to him reluctantly, I liked his timing, his sound, but he seemed to me rather cold.

Later, I began to accept him gradually. I realized he had chosen tango and that, little by little, he was finding his way. His phrasing became more lilting, tirzo licks and the expressive strenghth started to be showcased, even though they were always shown in a delicate subtle way that matched his style.


He was undoubtedly a virtuoso and the connoiseurs regard him as one of the most important guitarists of all times.

He was born in Berazategui, province of Buenos Aires, and learned to play guitar at a very young age, guided by his Dad. When he was only six he played on Radio Stentor.

In Februaryhis daughter Alejandra, while playing with his brother Gabriel —fourteen years old—, with a gun she thought was a toy gun shot him dead. The tragedy left marks: He recovered only five years later. From both misfortunes he was able to trao himself together thanks to his religious faith and his incredible will power. His own words acknowledge this: By that time I picked up saxophone again and that helped to widen my air capacity to face an asthma cafho appeared when I was rather old.

In a month-and-a-half time Tirwo wrote 24 charts for the sextet. So much so that a friend, the English guitarist David Caswell, came to our country to produce a record —which included Argentine guitarists— to help Cacho with the money collected by its sale.
