Tanda of the Week 03 / 2011 -
Anibal Troilo (milonga)



1. Aníbal Troilo / Francisco Fiorentino - "Con toda la voz que tengo" 1941 - TangoTunes
2. Aníbal Troilo / Francisco Fiorentino - "Ficha de oro" 1942
3. Aníbal Troilo - "De pura cepa" 1942

The milongas from Troilo might be concidered more challenging but they are amazing and with greater challenge comes greater rewards also. Play with caution, but once you find the right moment for these, you can expect great things to happen.

Check out the growing collection of digitalized Troilo shellacs in the TangoTunes.com in great quality.

This is the first tanda of 2011. Happy new year!

I first heard "Después de carnaval" in the Abrazos milonga in Singapore and was like "Yo! Why don't I have this song?". Well I found it along with "Vamos corazón" and joined them with "Plegaria" (check out the finnish version here) and the classic "Cuartito azul". Enjoy!
