"El apache argentino" by Juan D'Arienzo y su Orquesta Típica, 1944.

"El apache argentino", Argentine Tango music sheet cover.

Manuel Aróztegui

Pianist and composer (January 4, 1888 - November 14, 1938)

His devotion to music was born after he heard Pacho in 1905.

In 1912 accompanied by Paulino Facciona (violin) and Manuel Firpo (bandoneon), he appeared at the Café El Maratón (on Canning and Costa Rica). A terrible shooting ended his performances which had been carried out for six months. Probably the bandoneon attracted belligerent customers.

El Capuchino, a kind of cinema-ballroom, was the new scenery, of ambiance rather peaceful; there, his tenure lasted three years.

His first tango composition —“El apache argentino”—, was heard for the first time in 1913 there.

Withdrawn from the musical activity, later Aróztegui devoted himself to the decoration of toys that he himself peddled.
