Poet and lyricist (August 3, 1896 – July 28, 1947)
When asked in an interview about how he created his successful works, Celedonio Flores answered:
“I search for a piece of life, I live it through in my mind, I take it seriously, and then slowly and carefully I put to work with the lyrics”.
And continued: “As I have had my own experiences and wandered around, as I’ve met scoundrels myself, I can boast of having lived a thousand characters. I am not one of those who believe that the funny tango reflects people’s feelings. We all know that tango is sad as any other music of ours”.
