Noelia & Carlitos: all their performances

Noelia & Carlitos

The table below lists all the performances by Noelia Hurtado and Carlitos Espinoza that I was able to find online. For most performances, I was able to find the dates in which they took place. For a few performances, however, the dates are only approximate. These are listed in italics.

Update (April, 2015): I no longer have the time to keep this list updated, but I encourage visitors to post links to new videos in the comments section below (as many have done already).

Update (October, 2015): Okay, by popular demand I have decided to resume work on this list, and hope to gradually list all performances missing since the last update.

My favorite tandas: Juan Maglio – ‘Pobre flor’

Almost every dancer is familiar with Alfredo De Angelis’ version of ‘Pobre flor’, but few know that the vals was also recorded by Juan Maglio in 1932. A year before, Pacho recorded another vals, sung by Carlos Viván, the lyrics of which include the line “Pobre flor que ayer lucía…” The two valses thus seem to be made for each other, and may be combined with the instrumental ‘Princesa’, also from 1931, as I do in this tanda.

With thanks to Ton and those who commented on his post at the Facebook group ‘Today’s tango’, for inspiration.
