Calendario Milonguero

DAVID ROCATAGLIATA dies. He was thirty-four and had lived a very unruly life. He was an excellent violinist and was a member of the most selected group of the Guardia Vieja. In 1920 Victor recording label invited him to the US to record tangos. When he came back he became a member of the first sextet of Osvaldo Fresedo. He composed little and perhaps his best work is the one we are listening to here.
