“Cachirulo” by Anibal Troilo y su Orquesta Típica, 1941.
Tango and daily events
Music: Francisco Cafiero.
All or almost all the themes of daily events were taken to the music sheets by the composers: politics, sports, the feats of the brave who forged our fledgling aviation, children’s games, the characters of Buenos Aires, commercial advertisements, and so on.
These subjects and many more were, undoubtedly, an important part of the basis of our Tango repertoire.
