DDPs Favorite Tandas:

D’Arienzo: Romantic Tangos with Hector Mauré

Compadrón (1942)
Uno (1943)
Claudinette (1942)
Amarras (1944)

Although D’Arienzo is known as the “Rey del compás,” the king of the beat, he does have a softer side. These tangos with singer Hector Mauré are some of his classic melodic offerings. Happy Birthday Juan D’Arienzo!


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.

  1. Thank you for this tanda. I could never learn to appreciate Hector Maure as D’Arienzos’s vocalist but I like this one and I am goingto use it tomorrow.
