A guest Dj tanda from the down under! Dj Patricia Petronio from Australia. This is her second contribution to the blog. The first one was a tanda of Jose García (TOTW 52/2012).Unfortunately the second song, "Mamita", was not available on Deezer so I replaced it with "Mi pibe" from 1929 (by suggestion of Patricia).
Last year I saw a mention of Francisco Lomuto’s recordings of the late twenties. Michael Lavocah refers to this “very special period in the history of tango .. . the age of the sextets”. This sparked my curiosity. So, in May I headed over to the Buenos Aires Tango Club to pick up two Lomuto CDs “Perfume de mujer” (1927-28) and “Quejidos de tango” (1928-30). I was not disappointed! The RGS Tango Collection disc of Lomuto instrumentals also contains some gems from that era. I love the growling, unhurried and grounded sound, with lovely melodic variations.
