Birth of GUILLERMO CAVAZZA, pianist and composer. He remains in the history of tango for having composed a single piece: ALMA DE LOCA. Carlos Gardel recorded it and it was the first record of Roberto Goyeneche, another top singer of the “tango canción”.  Goyeneche recorded a few tangos appropriate for dancing that require much expertise on the part of the dancer. Here is one of them.
