Tanda of the Week 05 / 2012 -
Anibal Troilo con Francisco Fiorentino

1. Anibal Troilo / Francisco Fiorentino - "Garúa" 1943
2. Anibal Troilo / Francisco Fiorentino - "Sosiego en la noche" 1943
3. Anibal Troilo / Francisco Fiorentino - "Cada vez que me recuerdes" 1943
4. Anibal Troilo / Francisco Fiorentino - "Farol" 1943 

This weeks guest dj tanda comes from DJ Derrick Del Pilar from USA. He's the author of two of the finest tango blogs on the net: Poesia de Gotan and DDP's Favorite Tandas. Here's what he had to say about this tanda: 

"I have a soft spot for sentimental lyrics, and this tanda of gems from Troilo and Fiorentino is very sentimental. The music can be difficult to dance, but it is very rewarding, especially late at night during a longer milonga. The challenge that this music poses is different from the drama of, say, a late Pugliese. Lyrical music like this challenges us to slow down our dancing, find the pauses and silences and stillnesses.

I am especially fond of Troilo's version of "Farol" (click for translation), which closes this tanda. It is a very different interpretation than the slightly more famous version by Pugliese with Roberto Chanel, but to me it is less cynical and sweeter."
