Chiquilin de Bachin / Piazzolla, Astor
This beautiful waltz-tango is written by Astor Piazzolla (music) and Horacio Ferrer (lyrics). Together with “Balada Para Un Loco”, this one is the most famous they composed together.
“Chiquilin de Bachin” (“The little boy at Bachin”) is the history about a little boy bagging on the cafè Bachin in Buenos Aires. On one of the tables are Piazzolla and Ferrer enjoying their meal together with good friends. The meeting with this little boy became the inspiration for this song.
