Calendario Milonguero

Death of ANSELMO ROSENDO MENDIZABAL, pianist with musical training. Afro-Creole, born in a home with a strong economic position. All agree that the birth of tango, as we know it now, occurred in the last five years of the nineteenth century. Some estimate that the piano script of the EL ENTRERRIANO  (1897) belonging to the honoree, is the first tango itself.
