Ángel D'Agostino and Ángel Vargas: an unforgettable duo.

Ángel D'Agostino and Ángel Vargas formed an unforgettable tango binomial. The pianist and conductor Ángel D'Agostino, porteño tanguero, bachelor and friend of the night, was born in Buenos Aires on May 25, 1900, in a musicians' home where there was a piano. José Lomio, then Ángel Vargas, "the Nightingale of the Buenos Aires streets", was born in Parque Patricios on October 22, 1904. As a mechanic, he sang with a very personal style: melodic and tuned, with excellent modulation. They began to perform together in 1932, first in cinemas and then in the cabaret "Chantecler". The first albums recorded by Ángel Vargas were with the "Orquesta Típica Víctor", in 1935. In 1940, D'Agostino assembled his orchestra, met again and debuted on the label "R.C.A. Víctor" on November 13, 1940, with the songs "No aflojés" and "Muchacho". In 1941, they were hired by "Radio El Mundo". They recorded 94 records, the last being "Camino del Tucumán", in October 1946. Evocation and nostalgia were its basic component where Buenos Aires, its landscapes and its people were very well represented. It was one of the best tango duos of all time. In 1947, Vargas left to begin his solo career.
