April 13, 1941 — January 5, 2016
Only a month ago, I asked El Gallego for his permission to record a tanda in Lo de Celia. Before leaving that night, I showed him a video. Then he asked me to dance, and I apologized that I wasn’t wearing my dance shoes. It didn’t matter to him. I will never forget the two tangos of Juan D’Arienzo with him.
Last Sunday I gave him this photo with his friends in the milonga. He gave me a big kiss on the cheek.
