Evangelista Felipe Menna

November 13, 1928 —

With that first name, it’s no wonder he’s known simply as Lito in the milongas.  I met Lito in 2001 when he danced with his regular partner in Mi Club on Suipacha and Lavalle.  It wasn’t until July 2010 that I danced with him for the first time in Lo de Celia.  What an embrace!  I prefer dancing vocal recordings over instrumentals just so I can enjoy his singing in my ear.
