Calendario Milonguero

RENÉ RUIZ is born. Singer and guitarist. He was born in Tucumán. He is a clear example of a self-taught talented artist devoted to folk song. He arrives in Buenos Aires and, as it was inevitable, he makes his foray into the “porteña” culture. He starts composing milongas with a clear evocation of country life. Here is an example of this in a very beautiful version.

♫ EL DESAFÍO. Aníbal Troilo and Alberto Marino-Francisco Fiorentino (1944)
