This very popular tango dates from 1903 and is probably quite a challenge for an improver level piano/keyboard player. A tempo of 60-66 quarter note (crotchet) notes to the minute is recommended. The English translation of El Choclo is the "The Ear of Corn". Ãngel Villoldo (1861-1919) was an Argentinian composer and a pioneer of tango which became very popular from both the music and dancing point of view towards the end of the nineteenth century. It is popular today both in Argentina from where it originates and is a familiar and recognisable music style around the world.
