Lito Bayardo

Guitarist, singer, composer and lyricist (3 March 1905 – 7 March 1986)

When he was asked about the present Tango, he said:

«A new modernist theory that is based on a cerebral, but twisted tango has arisen. The work of the consecrated artists of the first stage has been underestimated to open the way to a music of hardened technique which is not popular. Among the musicians that interpret it there are great names, but they have spoiled the rhythm of true Tango».
