Argentine Tango dance technique 7: Walking forward and backward

“La yumba” by Osvaldo Pugliese y su Orquesta Típica, 1952.

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

It was his father who taught him his first music lessons, he started his first steps with violin too, but soon he switched to piano.

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).

Musician, violinist, leader and composer.
(26 November 1888 – 14 December 1964)

His life runs parallel to the history of Tango: starting in the poorest neighborhoods of Buenos Aires, moving up the social ladder, eventually achieving world wide recognition.

He was born in Uruguay in 1888.

During his early childhood he moved with his family to Buenos Aires, where they rented a room in a “conventillo”, collective form of accommodation or housing in which several poor families shared a house, typically one family for each room using communal sanitary services.

His family was very poor.

Later, he would become one of the wealthiest people in Argentina, and a major contributor to the diffusion of Tango in Buenos Aires, the rest of Argentina and abroad. He went on to be very involved in the struggle for musicians and composers rights, making it possible to make a living for musicians and generating incentives for them to improve and be creative.
