Homero Manzi

Poet and lyricist (1 November 1907 – 3 May 1951)

A decisive contribution by Manzi to the Río de la Plata music was his updating and enriching of the milonga, a genre that shares its origin with Tango.

Together with the pianist Sebastián Piana, he wrote great classics such as “Milonga sentimental”.

Manzi has given, like no one else, poetry to Tango lyrics.

He was a poet who never published a book of poems.

His poetry was evidenced only through songs, from country themes to urban music, the latter where he would be at his best.

In this way, he became immensely popular without giving up his poet’s feelings.

Ernesto Famá

Singer and composer (18 August 1908 – 19 July 1984)

He left more than three hundred recordings as vocalist and he can be regarded, even though he was not the first one, as the estribillista (refrain singer) par excellence.

He started in theater, later he was vocalist with Osvaldo Fresedo and, shortly, with Carlos Di Sarli.

The association with Francisco Canaro made possible his way up to fame.
