"Se han sentado las carretas" by Francisco Lomuto. Música: Agustín Bardi Letra: Enrique Cadícamo

“Se han sentado las carretas” by Francisco Lomuto y su Orquesta Típica with Fernando Díaz and Jorge Omar in vocals, 1939.

“Se han sentado las carretas” by Francisco Lomuto y su Orquesta Típica with Fernando Díaz and Jorge Omar in vocals, 1939.

Agustín Bardi

Violinist, pianist and composer (13 August 1884 – 21 April 1941)

Bardi felt Tango with a countryside essence, as if it were a transplant of the traditionally Argentine gaucho sensitivity to the music of Tango, which is the most representative sentimental manifestation of the city.

Such is the case of “Se han sentado las carretas”.

Bardi’s works always retain freshness and strength, reaching ever greater attraction in their audiences for the beauty and authenticity of their content.

Francisco Lomuto. Argentine music at Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires.Francisco Lomuto

Pianist, leader and composer.
(24 November 1893 – 23 December 1950)

Francisco Lomuto recorded with his orchestra, between 1922 and 1950, over 950 numbers.

His last orchestra was, undoubtedly, the best, the most evolved and the tightest he led. The bandoneon section was lined-up by Federico Scorticati, Alfredo Cordisco, Manuel Alvarez and Domingo Greco. The violins were in charge of Carlos Taverna, Ernesto Gianni, José Carli and Otelo Gasparini. The pianist was Juan Carlos Howard, the double bass player was Alberto Celenza and his singers were Alberto Rivera and Miguel Montero. Continue reading at www.todotango.com…

Eduardo Arolas

Bandoneonist, composer and leader (24 February 1892 – 29 September 1924)

“Viborita” is another of Arolas’ delicate tangos, with the peculiarity of having only two parts, without a trio, as was his custom.

Recorded in 1920 for the first time by the Orquesta Típica Select of Osvaldo Fresedo.

Its music sheet was not published until after 1930 when the nephew of Arolas received a pack with manuscripts.

That is why it appears published as posthumous work.

A wonderful rendition of this tango to dance at the milongas is the one recorded by Francisco Lomuto in 1944.
