Argentine Tango School

"Dos fracasos" by Miguel Caló y su Orquesta Típica with Alberto Podestá in vocals, 1941.

Miguel Caló, Argentine Tango musician, conductor and composer.

Miguel Caló

Bandoneonist, leader and composer (28 October 1907 - 24 May 1972)

Even though his most transcendental success is related to tango in the forties, his work starts in the late twenties and is consolidated during the thirties.

The forties reveal us the maturity of this great director, capable of assembling an outfit of young musicians of extraordinary capacity and professionalism, and all of them later organized their own groups.

The Miguel Caló orchestra will be remembered as the best tango performance, one that goes beyond its age and that today is recognized for its great artistic qualities and by a dancing group that permanently evokes it.
