Calendario Milonguero

Aníbal Troilo and Francisco Fiorentino record the milonga PAPÁ BALTAZAR on this day.  This superlative duo recorded 7 milongas, all magnificent.  It has lyrics from Homero Manzi. Its composer, Sebastián Piana, is considered as the one who started to “tanguear “ the original milonga born in rural areas.  He kept the 2×4 rhythm but improved the musical harmony. Let’s listen!
