Calendario Milonguero

LEOPOLDO DÍAZ VÉLEZ is born.Actor, singer and poet. He wrote more than 400 works, more than half of which were recorded. Perhaps his most famous text is the one we are listening to here. Its original title was MUCHACHOS SE ARMÓ LA MILONGA that was changed by the military government that was established in 1943 and that was determined to prohibit the use of “lunfardo”. According to this jargon, Milonga is the place where to dance tango.
