Calendario Milonguero

Date in which Ricardo Tanturi and Enrique Campos recorded LA URUGUAYITA LUCÍA. The tango title refers to a romantic issue. But the original theme is dedicated to the freedom struggle of the “33 Orientales”.  In 1825 this group landed on the so called Eastern Oriental Province. The expulsion of the Brazilian army gave birth to the neighboring country Uruguay.
