October 23rd, 1941

Calendario Milonguero

Date on which another memorable tango was recorded: TINTA ROJA. Ánibal Troilo recorded it. Sebastián Piana, the author of its music, had no money and his wife’s birthday was approaching. He decided to compose a musical score and take it to the recording label where they accepted it on the condition that it had lyrics. The pianist author then appealed to his friend Catulo Castillo with a wonderful result!
