Calendario Milonguero

ÁNGEL MAFFIA dies. Bandoneonist and composer. The brother of the great Pedro Maffia. He remained for several years in Madrid and Paris where he worked as an actor. When he came back he played in a few second rank orchestras. Carlos Gardel recorded a beautiful theme written by him: SUEÑO QUERIDO. Another wonderful theme, composed by the figure we are honoring, is the one we are listening to here.

♫ LA MADRUGADA. Juan D’Arienzo and Alberto Echagüe (1944)
