Calendario Milonguero

JUAN D’ARIENZO is born. Violinist and conductor. He was not a learned musician, but the orchestra that he founded in 1935 charmed the young generation. Soon a true social phenomenon would begin: a city started to dance. The sound mass, intense and festive, of his group, was in contrast with the slow and almost martial rhythm that was played at that time in the dance halls. In forty years he recorded almost one thousand themes.
