Cacho Tirao

Postby stublag » Tue Oct 16, 2007 3:06 pm

Just found out belatedly that the amazing argentine guitarist Cacho Tirao has died.Though not well known in the UK or USA he was considered a legend in latin America and he was an extraordinary virtuoso.He was the first guitarist in Piazzolla's grupo and was also a huge fan of Djangos.
Check out his great version of Baden Powell's "Berimbau".I met him in 2000 and will never forget his humility and kindness.RIP
