“El Entrerriano” by Juan D’Arienzo y su Orquesta Típica, 1946.

"El entrerriano", Argentine Tango music sheet cover.

The story of “El entrerriano” and its main recordings

With this number the three-section structure that prevailed in the old trend tango began to spread and, more than a hundred years later, “El entrerriano” is still one of the greatest classics of the genre.

The canyengue liveliness of the melody amazed the audience from the first bar.

The dancer José Guidobono, who was present, could not dance as he used to because the spell of those musical notes paralyzed him.

When the number was finished, he approached the composer and suggested,” Why don’t you dedicate it to Segovia?”

He was referring to Ricardo Segovia, a landowner from Entre Ríos, who was making whoopee in the Buenos Aires nights.

Mendizábal told him he would honor him by naming “El entrerriano” his new tango.
