Program Notes

El Choclo is a popular tango by Ángel Villoldo , an Argentinian musician. Supposedly, the title derives from the nickname of a nightclub owner. The instrumental piece was released in Buenos Aires in 1903, and was premiered in the elegant El Americano restaurant on the 966 Cangallo Street by the Jose Luis Roncallo orchestra.

The tango was planned as a potboiler, but with its catchy melody and the performance at an exquisite location Villoldo promised a better existence and filled "pucheros" (pots) with enough corn.
