Calendario Milonguero

Birth of HUGO BARALIS. Great low profile violinist.  He was the son of an excellent bassist (Hugo Ricardo) who started his career with the ensemble of Eduardo Arolas. The musician we are paying homage to, shortly after the premiere of the orchestra of Anibal Troilo, joined it in the line of violins. There he remained for about 6 years. Later he became a member of the Astor Piazzolla’s octet. Here we are playing a tango from the period in which he was a member of  Pichuco’s admirable orchestra.
