Argentine Tango School

“Sólo compasión” by Ángel D’Agostino y su Orquesta Típica with Ángel Vargas in vocals, 1941.

Angel D'Agostino and Ángel Vargas, Argentine Tango music.
Music: Benjamín Holgado Barrio. Lyrics: Luis Castiñeira.

In the early years of the 30s, Ángel D’Agostino put together his own tango orchestra.

In 1939 Alfredo Attadía joined them as lead bandoneon and arranger.

He had great vocalists.

Among them, the most outstanding one was Ángel Vargas, who became an icon of the orchestra.

D’Agostino was right with the purpose of creating a style of very simple musical conceptions, but with an expressive way of playing, carried out by a qualified nucleus of performers.

But the identification with Angel Vargas determined, over the independent work of each one, the success of a team that managed to succeed at the time of the greatest presence of major Tango figures.
