Calendario Milonguero

HORACIO PETTOROSSI dies. Guitarist and composer. Since his childhood he devoted himself to studying the instrument. Occasionally he joined the trio of guitars that accompany Carlos Gardel. He could not participate into the convocation that was made to him by the singer from Colombia and so he saved himself from the plane accident in Medellín where Gardel died. He is the author of the tango we are listening to now.

♫ GALLEGUITA. Osvaldo Pugliese and Roberto Chanel (1945)
