Bandoneonist, composer and leader (24 February 1892 – 29 September 1924)
In 1912 Roberto Firpo called Arolas and Roccatagliatta to play with him at the famous cabaret Armenonville. Later, Arolas distanced himself from Firpo and had a sign at his presentations that clarified “We don’t play Firpo’s compositions”.

We need to educate ourselves with a set of good habits, which in turn will allow us to flow through the dance floor in a comfortable manner.
The more of our classes you take, the sooner you will feel comfortable and incorporate what you are learning to be able to dance.

In spite of the jolly mood of the orchestra that accompanied him for almost all his career, he was a neat singer with good taste.
At age 18 he made his debut in the orchestra led by the bandoneonist Enrique Rodríguez to replace the singer Roberto Flores (Chato). Fate, with the passing of time, would turn him into the emblematic voice of the orchestra. Continue reading.
