Calendario Milonguero

Death of NICOLÁS VACCARO, pianist and composer. He distinguished himself performing with his own ensemble in the cabarets of the ’30s. These sites consisted of a large room with a dance floor surrounded by tables and a bar, all well lit. There an “orquesta tipica” and a jazz band would performed. At the door was a uniformed doorman. We are now listening to a great tango by Vaccaro.
