Chiquilín de Bachín


Chiquilín de Bachín

To be released on October 17. This famous Argentine song by Astor Piazzolla (words by Horacio Ferrer) is based on a Chiquilín (‘little one’) Piazzolla and Ferrer knew in real life; a poor 11-year-old named Pablo who spends his nights alone on the streets of Buenos Aires selling flowers to patrons of the theater district’s restaurants and cafés, including one by the name of Bachín. Voice and arrangement by Christel Veraart. Read More

“They say no meeting is a coincidence but when a meeting turns into a relationship as fine as we have it is a blessing. I cried the first time I heard my words being sung by Christel’s beautiful voice. She captures exactly the quality that I feel when I compose the meditation.”
