Calendario Milonguero

CIRIACO ORTIZ dies. Excellent bandoneonist. Until he was 18 he played his instrument in his hometown: Córdoba. As a conductor of a trio and of an orchestra he recorded more than 300 pieces. When he decided to break that group, the majority of his musicians went on to form the base of Aníbal Troilo’s first group. Here we listen to one of his tangos regularly played at milongas.

♫ ATENTI PEBETA. Alfredo De Angelis and Julio Martel (1949)
