Canaro: Fast Milongas

No hay tierra como la mía, singer Ernesto Famá (1936)
La milonga de Buenos Aires
, singer Ernesto Famá (1939)
Milonga brava
, singer Roberto Maida (1938)

Francisco Canaro was a master of milongas—and these are some of his fastest. Not for the faint of heart, or those who fear sweating.
