DDPs Favorite Tandas:

Lomuto: Vocals with Jorge Omar

La melodía de nuestro adiós (1938)
Mano a mano (1936)
Madreselva (1938)
Nostalgias (1936)

Francisco Lomuto‘s orchestra has an old-guard feeling, somewhere between the lightness of his friend Canaro, and the rawness of Edgardo Donato. I love dancing to Lomuto, and I find he is another good orchestra to use as a bridge between tandas with sharper beats and those with more lyrical passages.
This tanda, starring singer Jorge Omar, features two of the most covered tangos of all time, “Madreselva” and “Nostalgias.”


About Derrick Del Pilar

Born and raised in Chicago, I came to the tango while studying at the Universidad de Belgrano in Buenos Aires in 2006. In 2008 I earned my B.A. with majors in Creative Writing and Spanish & Portuguese from the University of Arizona, and in 2009 I earned an M.A. in Latin American Studies at the University of California, Berkeley. My specialty is the history & literature of early 20th century Argentina.
