May 15th, 1891

Calendario Milonguero

Birth in Sicily, Italy of JUAN CALDARELLA, guitarist, composer and actor. He is the author of the tango we are listening to. Before bringing the music to paper, he used to improvise the melody, blowing through a comb covered with cellophane. The title came when he read the headlines in “Critica”, a newspaper of the time: Canaro makes statements in Paris about tango. The year was 1925.
