In the 40s Pugliese recorded some instrumental pieces of his own which anticipated the avant-garde.
Such is the case of “La yumba” (which became a sort of anthem of his orchestra).
Through years, Osvaldo Pugliese orchestra was banned for broadcasting as a means of political censorship but it did not succeed in diminishing his popular acceptance.
