Calendario Milonguero

Death of FRANCISCO AMOR, singer. In 1938 Francisco Canaro introduced for the first time two vocalists in a tango orchestra: Roberto Maida, who was already its member, and the one we are honoring here as a new entry. In disagreement with the introduction of another singer, Maida  withdrew from such initiative that same year. Amor recorded one dozen songs. Let’s listen to one of them, a very milonguero one.
