Orquesta Tipica Victor

Orquesta Típica Victor was the house band of the Victor Talking Machine Co in Argentina. The band was initially formed in 1925 with pianist Adolfo Carabelli as artistic director.  Típica Victor created more than 449 recordings until 1944 when the orquesta was disbanded. The exact number of recordings is hard to determine, because the band would often back a singer and the songs appeared under that singer’s name. Being created exclusively for recording purposes, the band never appeared in public, but they had a highly danceable style of music that we still dance to today.
