This weeks tanda from a guest DJ Vincenzo Marino in honor of the anniversary of the death of the tango poet and lyricist José Maria Contursi (31 October 1911 - 11 May 1972). Contursi was the author of lyrics of some of the most popular tango songs of his time. Songs like "Bajo un cielo de estrellas", "En esta tarde gris", "Verdemar" and of course "Gricel" all came from Contursis pen and in this tanda Alberto Marino sings his songs with the orchestra of Anibal Troilo.
DJ Vincenzo Marino (Italy) is the musicalizador of some of the best milongas of Triveneto and collaborates with the association "Tango e Vita" and has also played in festivals both in Italy and internationally.
Thank you Vincenzo!
I'm suprised that it is still impossible to find a good version of "Sombras nada mas" on Spotify or Deezer. Notice the skip in the beginning of the song. Also a lot of the versions out there are way too fast or low sound quality. At least TangoTunes.com has the correct version of the song without the skip and you can purchase it right here!
Enjoy and have a great week!
