El Choclo - Tango Argentine Villoldo Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
Argentine composer Angel Villoldo used to play the piano at a high-society cafe in Buenos Aires, called the Restaurante Americano. He showed the proprietor the music of his latest composition, the tango El Choclo. It was by far the best Villoldo had written but the cafe owner was worried about playing low-class dance music for the "creme-de-la creme" of Buenos Aires society dining at his restaurant. But he loved the tune, so they renamed it a "danza criolla", a Creole dance. El choclo is Spanish meaning "the ear of corn", and a milonga is a dancing place.. 
Vieja milonga que en mi horas de tristeza,  Old milonga that in my hours of sadness
 traes a mi mente tu recuerdo cariñoso  brings to my mind your affectionate memory,
 y, encadenandome a tus notas dulcemente,  and sweetly chaining me to your notes, 
 siento que el alma se me encoje poco a poco;  I feel my soul shrinking little by little.
 Hoy que los años han blanqueado ya mis sienes  Now that the years have whitened my temples,
 Tango querido, viejo tango que me embargas   Dear tango, old tango that overpowers me
con la cadencia de tu musica sentida  with the cadence of its heart-felt music,
 recuerdo aquella epoca, tan linda que se fue.  I remember that wonderful period,  which has flown.
