The first milongueros

The names of the first Tango dancers milongueros are not in a book on the history of Tango but in police records.

In a newspaper from 1862, it is read that Daniel Molina, Feliciano Orsine, Rufino Olguín, and José Sandoval, with the women Catalina Barsolo and Francisca Díaz, were imprisoned at the police station for dancing with “cortes y quebradas”… which was forbidden.
