The bandoneón and I

Omar Caccia, bandoneon player, bandoneonist.


My encounter with the bandoneón takes place in 2013: the only eye contact with this instrument bewitches me. Within a few months I got one and started playing it. But the bandoneón is a demanding instrument: playing "by ear" as I had always done is no longer enough, I feel the need for a master and to deepen the musical language.


Autumn 2017 comes: a series of circumstances takes me to South America, with the bandoneón as travel companion. I move to various locations but my real destination is becoming clearer: Buenos Aires. In February 2018 I reach the Argentina's capital and settle there. I start studying the bandoneón at the Manuel de Falla Conservatory.


In December 2021 I finish the T.A.P. at the "Manuel de Falla" Conservatory, Buenos Aires. I begin to concentrate on musical interpretation studying with teachers from Argentina and Italy. Meanwhile, I focus my musical research on organ works' transcription and adaptation of works from keyboards' literature on the bandoneón.

Bandoneon Zen

This book was born from a dream.
It's about bandoneón, but in a very unconventional form.
This text is an attempt to shape that book from the world of ideas.

I think that this book can also be useful for those who play an instrument other than bandoneón. In fact, it is by no means a method for learning the bandoneón. And it doesn’t really have much to do with Zen either, I think.

But calling it "Bandoneón Zen" was the most immediate thing.
