Osvaldo Pugliese

Pianist, leader, composer. (2 December 1905 - 25 July 1995)

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.
