It was about 1929, one Saturday, Gardel appeared and  snapped us: “Why do not you write a tango and give it to me?”

“Cátulo and I looked at each other and agreed to do it right away. I sat down and wrote the lyrics (I am not unaware that it is very poor, but the music of Cátulo saves it). The next day we gave it to Gardel who immediately recorded it.” Continue reading.

I was born in Argentina. Through my family and the community that saw my upbringing, I have been intimately involved with Tango all my life, and have been an Argentine Tango dancer, choreographer and instructor for over 30 years. I profoundly love Tango dancing, music, and culture, particularly that of the Golden Era. I am a milonguero.
