Calendario Milonguero

JOSÉ MARTINEZ dies. He was nicknamed the “Gallego” (a name given to those originally from Galicia, in Spain and by extension to all those with a Spanish heritage) although his great-grandparents were Argentinean. Important pianist of the Guardia Vieja. Some of his tangos are still played at milongas today. The song we have chosen here is dedicated to Pablo Podestá, a great Uruguayan artist (actor, singer, sculptor, acrobat and painter) one of the founders of the Argentinean theater.
