ORLANDO GOÑI (Gogni) is born. Pianist and conductor. He is considered one of the five best pianists in tango. He was able to get a crystal sound from his instrument. With great imagination he used to break the natural rhythm putting the accent on a weak note or on a semi-strong one (syncopation). He remained with Aníbal Troilo for six years during which he marked the beginning of a style and recorded 71 themes. He died when he was 31 years old.
