Jorge Mansur

July 6, 1939 —

The milongueros are disappearing from the milongas, so when one of them reappears after many years, it’s worth mentioning.  That’s exactly what happened last week.

I didn’t know his name, but I recorded him during a birthday celebration at Lo de Celia in July 2004.  Someone told me that he moved to Spain.  Then he showed up for the Wednesday milonga at Lo de Celia.

Jorge is back only for a visit, but at least he has returned.
