Bandoneonist, leader, and composer
(28 November 1920 – 29 July 1979)

Not only should we remember this notable musician because he was a good bandoneon player but also for his orchestra which for 20 years won the heart of the people of our country with its rhythmic style and its sentimental repertory.

He was as well great for the radio and the recording industry.

He composed the music of that number and the poet Horacio Sanguinetti wrote its lyrics. It was inspired by the melody of a Jewish musician of Ukrania. This curiosity highlights Sánchez Gorio’s capability to develop a little country music into a tango of extraordinary popular acclaim. Continue reading at www.todotango.com…

Orlando Medina

Singer (30 March 1918 – 11 August 2004)

Interview to an orchestra singer:

I started off at the school parties and as my father was a restless guy he formed a trio which he named ‘Los Americanitos’. None of us was above twelve years old. For a rather long time we gigged in intermission shows at cinemas and theaters.”

“At the Medrano cinema theater I was accompanied by one kid that played the bandoneon, he was Aníbal Troilo. Years later, when he was already well known, I dared not to ask him if he remembered those stints.” 

“With my repertoire I had several satisfactions. With “Remembranza”, at some clubs I had to give three encores and was carried victoriously on people’s shoulders.”

“I was the first one to sing and record that tango song backed by an orchestra.”

Ricardo Malerba

Bandoneonist, leader and composer (24 August 1905 – 29 June 1974)

He was lucky to live, in his beginnings, in the tango ambience of the late twenties, to travel to Europe and take part of a bohemia that shaped him artistically. His orchestra was known either for the quality of its sound or the swinging attributes of its rhythm.

Among his compositions these stand out “La piba de los jazmines”

Bandoneonist, leader and composer
(24 August 1905 – 29 June 1974)

He was lucky to live, in his beginnings, in the tango ambience of the late twenties, to travel to Europe and take part of a bohemia that shaped him artistically. His orchestra was known either for the quality of its sound or the swinging attributes of its rhythm.

He started gigging with a group lined-up with his brothers, the bandoneon was played by Ricardo, on piano was Alfredo and on violin, Carlos. Their stints were at cinema theaters in the local neighborhoods. They earned one peso a day.

Later, in 1927, along with his brothers he joined the orchestra that Cátulo Castillo put together to go to Europe. Miguel Caló and Roberto Maida were as well members of it. They stayed in Spain for a long period and gigged in numerous cities. There they recorded several records for the Odeon label. The tour ended in 1930, but the Malerba brothers stayed in Europe.

Ricardo Malerba and his orchestra appeared on the movie “La vida de Carlos Gardel” (1939), in which Hugo del Carril and Delia Garcés were starred, performing the tango piece “Noches de Montmartre” (start at 1:11:50).
