Calendario Milonguero

Birth in Paris of ALFREDO GOBBI, violinist, composer and director. His parents were pioneers of “tango sainetero” brough then to the French capital city. The great musician formed his orchestra in 1942. He excelled in instrumental tango dance music. His style is slow with dense tango character. However it seldom sounds in the milongas. Let’s hear one of his works.
