DDPs Favorite Tandas:

Troilo: More Classic Vocals with Fiorentino

Pájaro ciego (1941)
Toda mi vida 
No le digas que la quiero 
Tinta roja 

Troilo and Fiorentino are each titans of tango on their own, and together they form one of the most prolific and beloved orchestra-singer pairings of the 1940s. I’ve already posted another tanda of their tangos, but at the moment I love these just a little bit more.
The first song, “Pájaro ciego,” is a beautiful duet with singer Amadeo Mandarino.


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.
