Calendario Milonguero

Birth in Potenza, Italy, of LUIS MOTTOLESE, violinist, composer and conductor. He was a member of different orchestras and also had his own. Mottolese was not very distinguished in his activities. However, he is another example of the strong Italian influence on tango, one that has been the most important contribution to genre after the “Rioplatense” one. Now we listen to a vals by him.
