Eduardo Arolas a 120 años de su nacimiento - ¿A quién le importa Arolas hoy?'s biography

In the year of the centenary, there were already divisions between orthodox and innovative musicians. And Arolas, at that moment, had already established himself as the first avant-garde artist. In 1912, he directed the first orchestra that recorded albums including bandoneon. As a performer, he is given credit for the creation of the grumbling and phrasing. He was born 120 years ago and died in 1924. Today, contemporary musicians continue playing his tangos, which remain incredibly in force.
