Calendario Milonguero

ANSELMO AIETA dies. Bandoneonist, composer and conductor. It is a typical example of the Guardia Vieja as he did not know how to read music, but he had a special ear for the music. He was one of the most prolific composers of his generation, both for quantity and for refinement. Clear examples of this refinement are SIGA EL CORSO and MARIPOSITA. Now let’s listen to the vals he composed.

PALOMITA BLANCA. Aníbal Troilo and Alberto Marino-Floreal Ruiz (1944)
