GRACIANO DE LEONE was born. Bandoneon player. His most notable phase was during the five years where he performed in the now defunct Café Dominguez (at 1500 of Avenida Corrientes). Here he played with the “cuarteto bravo de Graciano Leone” (the brave quartet of Graciano Leone) as Julián Centeya comments in the introduction of the tango Café Dominguez interpreted by Ángel D’Agostino. Let’s listen to a piece by the artist we are celebrating here.
