Calendario Milonguero

 JOSÉ AMUCHÁSTEGUI KEEN dies. Although an outsider in the tango world, he wrote the lyrics and the music for two tangos. One of them was forgotten, while the other one entered history. This second one he titled DESPUÉS DEL CARNAVAL. There are about eighty different pieces celebrating these popular holidays celebrated in Buenos Aires. The version we are listening to now is milonguera and very elegant.
