“Tierra negra” by Juan D’Arienzo y su Orquesta Típica, 1942.

"Tierra Negra" music sheet cover. Argentine Tango music.

Graciano De Leone

Bandoneonist, leader and composer (July 16, 1890 – June 21, 1945)

This porteño was initially a guitarist. His friend, Eduardo Arolas, persuaded him to pick up the bandoneon.

His beginning with the new instrument was —towards 1910- at the Café del Griego, though, in fact, its name was Café Royal.

Thirty-two numbers of his own have been found.

Many of them were committed to disc.

“Tierra negra” is one of his outstanding numbers.
