“Bailongo de los domingos” by Ricardo Tanturi y su Orquesta Típica with Alberto Castillo in vocals, 1943 (with English translation).
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!
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!
“La piba de los jazmines” by Ricardo Malerba y su Orquesta Típica with Orlando Medina in vocals, 1943.
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”
