Today’s the 25th of May! It’s a major public holiday in Argentina: the Argentina Revolution Day or Dia de la revolucion de Mayo. It commemorates “all the events and major incidents in the history of Argentina leading to the May Revolution and the eventual independence of the country”. The May revolution was a first step towards independence, and led to Argentina claiming its independence after 6 long years, in 1816.
So what better to day to listen to Francisco Canaro’s 25 de Mayo? Here it is!
