The story goes that Firpo only put Cambareri into his orquesta to keep him from joining any other orquesta until Firpo was ready to launch his new concept, the recording quartet, in the form of his Cuarteto Los De Antes, with Cambareri on bandoneon. As Cambareri was only 16 at the time he must have been a master bandoneonista, and this episode traces his playing with the Cuarteto Los De Antes.

The Tango Social Club of Canberra was at the National Folk Festival in Canberra this Easter, and Tango Capital tagged along to see what goes into taking tango out into the broader community. Sunday 1 April they hosted the milonga, and the following playlist for Sunday 1 April showcases the traditional music played that night as well as the music bracket performed live by La Busca. Then the following edition of Tango Capital explored the workshops and demonstrations held over the weekend, illustrated by the music danced at the displays and listed below in the second playlist.
