DDPs Favorite Tandas:
D'Arienzo, Milonga

D’Arienzo: Late ’30s Milongas with Echagüe

Milonga del corazón (1938)
Estampa de varón (1938)
La cicatriz (1939)

D’Arienzo recorded some wonderful milongas throughout his long career. I love these early vocal ones with Alberto Echagüe singing. Actually, “La cicatriz” is one of my favorite milongas of all time, and it took a long time and a lot of help from many different people for me to translate it. Click on the link to read the story and the translation of this wonderful milonga.
