Osvaldo Pugliese

In the 40s Pugliese recorded some instrumental pieces of his own which anticipated the avant-garde. Such is the case of “La yumba” (which became a sort of anthem of his orchestra), “Negracha” and “Malandraca”. Because of these two latter, he is regarded as a pioneer in the use of syncopation and counterpoint prior to Horacio Salgán and Astor Piazzolla. Other important tangos Pugliese composed and played are, above all, the aforementioned “Recuerdo“, and “La beba”, “Adiós Bardi”, “Recién“, “Barro“, “Una vez” and “El encopao“. Read more…
