Bailongo de los domingos | Argentine music to learn to dance at Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires

Music: Oscar Arona | Lyrics: Francisco García Jiménez

Novela del bailarín
que escrita está,
un cacho en cada salón
de mi ciudad.
De la “Unione” al “Augusteo”
con ella te veo
soñando a compás.
Silenciosos van los dos
y dejás que hable por vos
la milonga en sus floreos.
Viejas quejas de pasión
renovando parejas
con este son…

Bailongo de los domingos!
Por vos ni vuelto a los pingos!
Y encadenado a tus tangos
hoy vivo cautivo
del ritmo dulzón.
Emoción hay una sola
y es llorar de bandoneones
fraseando acordes de Arolas.
Bailongo de los domingos!
Remanso del corazón!

Translation:

Dancer’s novel
written
a piece in each ballroom
of my city.
From the “Unione” to the “Augusteo”
I see you with her
dreaming in sync with the beat.
Both going silent,
and you let it the embellishments of the milonga
speak for you
Old complaints of passion
renewing couples
with this music.

Sunday’s dancing!
Because of you I stop going to the horse racings!
Chained to your tangos
I am captive
of the sweet rhythm.
Emotion there is only one
and is the crying from bandoneons
phrasing Arolas chords.
Sunday’s dancing!
Calm waters of the heart!

Pura maña | Argentine music to learn to dance at Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires

Pedro Maffia

Bandoneonist, leader, composer, teacher (28 August 1899 – 16 October 1967)

It is not known what secret gift made Pedro Maffia find in the core of the bandoneon sounds that nobody had discovered before.

Maffia was who delivered the bandoneon needed by this popular genre so to leave behind the playful Guardia Vieja and turn serious, concentrated, fairly dreaming and frequently sad.

As composer, very few were like him. Among his great tangos, stands out “Pura maña”

Ricardo Malerba

Bandoneonist, leader and composer (24 August 1905 – 29 June 1974)

He was lucky to live, in his beginnings, in the tango ambience of the late twenties, to travel to Europe and take part of a bohemia that shaped him artistically. His orchestra was known either for the quality of its sound or the swinging attributes of its rhythm.

Among his compositions these stand out “La piba de los jazmines”

Ernesto Famá

Lucio Demare

Pianist, composer, arranger and leader (9 August 1906 – 6 March 1974)

A player of unmistakable sound and phrasing, he has been an authentic speaker with his piano.

An intimate mood playing which is exactly exemplified by his rendition of “Qué solo estoy”

Either his instrumental and vocal charts have the trademark of his fine personality as artist or the groups he led.
