Calendario Milonguero

Birth of PASCUAL CLAUSI, bandoneon player and composer. Clausi wrote that in one occasion he went to see Carlos Gardel, shortly before the singer would go on stage, in order to interest him in his composition ECHANDO MALA. Gardel told him he would sing the song the same night. The story confirms a known fact, the prodigious memory “El Zorzal” had.  Now a theme by Clausi for dancing.
