Calendario Milonguero

CELEDONIO FLORES is born. He is one of the most celebrated poets of tango. His repertoire was both learned and popular. An expert of “lunfardo”, he had bohemian habits. As a young man he was a boxer. Carlos Gardel recorded 21 of his works. In the milongas we still listen to his beautiful works: EL BULÍN DE LA CALLE AYACUCHO, CORRIENTES Y ESMERALDA and the one we are listening to here.
