Don Juan, Argentine Tango music sheet cover.

Ernesto Ponzio

Violinist and composer (10 July 1885 - 21 October 1934)

The well-known tango “Don Juan (El taita del barrio)” was, apparently, written in 1898.

We also know that its 2nd edition bears a lyric written by Ricardo J. Podestá.

According to different authors it was premiered at the dancehall run by Concepción Amaya, Mamita, Lavalle 2177, around 1900.

It was enthusiastically aired either at the J. Hansen’s restaurant (Sarmiento Ave.) or at the Casares kiosk.
