General and Executive production: Lupa Productora


Two young bandoneon players from Bahía Blanca, a city in Patagonia, Argentina, share a music project “El Quinteto de Yapa” and being grandsons of great bandoneon players from the golden age of tango.

Their passion for the instrument stems from the same experience: a deep admiration to their own grandfathers. In this musical territory, possibilities has no limits and the ages blur into a single frame: the passion for the bandoneon which, like the wind that flows inside it to become music, dances beyond its shadow.


Pato Vitali y Pablo Amado son dos jóvenes bandoneonistas de la ciudad de Bahía Blanca. Comparten, además de un proyecto musical –el Quinteto de Yapa–, la particularidad de ser nietos de bandoneonistas. La pasión por el instrumento, en ellos, emerge de una vivencia común: la de la admiración de sus mayores.

Alrededor de estas dos historias jóvenes de vida, en las que se narrará cómo se vive el aprendizaje en estos tiempos, se encontrarán voces de familiares y músicos que habitan su misma constelación sonora. Los recorridos de Pato y Pablo como amigos y compañeros, en Bahía Blanca y Buenos Aires, funcionarán como excusa, a su vez, para hablar de la herencia, de los vínculos de sangre, de las presiones, del amor filial, del estudio, del esfuerzo y de la pasión por la música como modo de vida.

La historia del bandoneón en Bahía Blanca y la zona será narrada, a su vez, por boca de algunos de sus protagonistas, quienes recuerdan las épocas de gloria (años 40’ y 50’) y miran hacia el futuro con la esperanza puesta en las nuevas generaciones. El documental ejecutará, a su vez, un merecido reconocimiento a los abuelos de Pato y Pablo: Carlos Amado, Aníbal Vitali y Raúl Girau. Sus hijos, una generación intermedia que funciona como fueye, estarán a cargo de repensar el hilo conductor entre aquellos años y éstos, con sus propios hijos como vectores.

Con un gran trabajo de recupero de archivo fotográfico y sonoro, este documental ficcionado intentará ofrecer, por primera vez, un panorama dinámico y atrapante del tango en Bahía Blanca y del papel que jugó la radio como escenario. “Canta tu ombligo y serás universal”, escribió el poeta Andrés Florit: la historia del bandoneón en esta ciudad es, potencialmente, la historia del bandoneón al abrigo de un país entero.

Estos nietos mimados del tango local, a quienes el misísimo Néstor Marconi les compone arreglos para que ejecuten, no dejarán de confesar las dificultades que supone aprender de un familiar. Pato explicará por qué no conoció a su abuelo sino hasta los dieciocho años, y Pablo dirá que su padre no se dedicó a la música y que a su cargo quedó, de alguna manera, asumir la herencia.

El lugar de la mujer en este escenario será también puesto en estado de pregunta: se incluirán voces jóvenes que se referirán no sólo a las modificaciones académicas que la enseñanza del tango receptó, sino también a qué nuevas aceptaciones aparecieron en el campo.

Abuelos y nietos se encontrarán en un no lugar, en un territorio musical en el que las posibilidades no encuentran límites y en el que la edad se diluye hasta igualarlos en la pasión por un instrumento que, como el viento que corre por su estructura para convertirse en música, baila mucho más allá de sus sombras.
