Tune of the Day: El Choclo

Popular Argentinian tango

One of the most popular tangos in Argentina, this song was written by composer and singer Ángel Villoldo in honor of the nickname of the proprietor of a nightclub, who was known as El Choclo (literally “the corn cob”). The piece was premiered at a restaurant in Buenos Aires in 1903, and has since been recorded by many dance orchestras, especially in Argentina.

Thanks to Monique for suggesting this piece!
