Argentine Tango School

"Jirón porteño" by Alfredo De Ángelis y su Orquesta Típica with Julio Martel in vocals, 1946.

"Jirón porteño", Argentine Tango music sheet cover.

Julio Navarrine

Lyricist, composer, singer and actor (20 December 1889 – 11 March 1966)

He wrote a good number of tango lyrics.

In “Oro muerto” (later its title was changed to "Jirón porteño"), this singular promoter of Argentine popular music achieved a beautiful and genuine suburb vignette.

It is his most transcendent work.
