Bandoneon player, Buenos Aires, Argentina

We’ve been in Buenos Aires for a week now and finally went to Caminito.  This street museum is located in La Boca, a neighborhood of Buenos Aires. It’s probably the most touristic place of the city, and for a reason — its unique character.  The place acquired cultural significance because it inspired the music for the famous tango “Caminito” (1926), composed by Juan de Dios Filiberto.

On a sunny day, Caminito is a pleasant place to spend a little time. Too bad the streets around the place are not yet very sure.

  1. Beautiful! Can you say more about the figure in the background? It’s such a great shot, where the two figures seem to mimic each other!

    • Yes, indeed, the doll behind Domingo Agnese, the musician, is his own double. Domingo is a street artist and he plays around Caminito. I did not see him acting with the figure, but I can easily imagine both playing the bandoneon together, one mimicking the other.
