December 11th: “Día del Tango”

Calendario Milonguero

The “DÍA DEL TANGO” (the day of tango). It is the anniversary of the birth of Carlos Gardel (11/12/1890) and Julio De Caro (11/12/1899). Gardel created the rhythmic phrasing to sing tango. De Caro established the instrumental polyphony of the “orchestra tipica”. As homage to dancing, the third tango genre, we chose a “tangazo” recorded on another December 11th (1939).
