"Unión Cívica" by Juan D'Arienzo y su Orquesta Típica, 1938.

"Unión Cívica", Argentine Tango music sheet cover.

Domingo Santa Cruz

Bandoneonist, leader and composer (20 December 1884 - 5 August 1931)

His father used to fill his leisure time by playing music with a small bandoneon that he owned.

Domingo, still a child, took advantage of his absences, and, entranced, he held the bellows, and out of it, he achieved sleepy phrases.

As for formal musical training, in fact, he had none. For him, it was enough a sensitive vocation and a strong will.

He began as a composer in 1904, with the tango “Unión Cívica”.
