Ángel Gregorio Villoldo (1861 - 1919)

Ángel Gregorio Villoldo, who was born in Argentina in 1861, and considered the father of tango, was perhaps the musician that best understood the city of the old Buenos Aires of the late 1800s leading up to the years of the First World War. He died in 1919.

He played guitar with the harmonica, also violin and piano, he wrote lyrics, was an actor and a bit of a dancer too.
