ÁNGEL VILLOLDO dies. Spontaneous artist with first rate artistic resources. Today he would be something more than a songwriter with a guitar and a harmonica. The historians recognize two fathers of tango: him and Vicente Greco. In 1907 he was invited to Paris to play and record. He composed the music and the lyrics of several dozens of tangos. He is the author of EL CHOCLO and of the one we are listening to now.
