Donato Racciatti

Donato Racciatti was born in Uruguay, a country to which he remained loyal throughout his tango career. He formed his own orchestra in 1948 and started recording on the Uruguayan Sondor label. His style is often compared to D'Arienzo in that it is largely rhythmic, although it is rather simpler in execution in both the piano and bandoneons. This means its not as interesting as D'Arienzo, but nevertheless, the music's strong beats and the contributions of great singers have carved out a niche for Racciatti in the affections of the modern tango public.
