ENRIQUE DELFINO is born. Pianist with a cult following. Bohemian of the Guardia Nueva. He composed more than 200 tangos. He is the creator of the so-called tango romanza, with a musical accent on the melody instead of on the intense rhythm of the tango-milonga. He produced a sort of “Copernican” revolution in achieving beautiful and danceable sung tangos. Here is one of his works of art.
