October 9th, 1941

Calendario Milonguero

Date in which Anibal Troilo and Francisco Fiorentino record a superb tango: MARAGATA. It is actually a “tonada campera” composed by Francisco Isidro Martino. Its text contains words that sound strange to the contemporary porteño: Maragata and macachines. The first one was the women originally from León in Spain were called. The second one is the name of a beautiful wild flower.
