Carlos Waiss

Lyricist (2 October 1909 – 27 August 1966)

He had a great ability to produce his works, which in many cases reflected his experiences as an active man of the night.

According to his friends, he was noted for his pleasant affable personality, always boasting a smile in his nights of cabaret and gambling. 

Among his works we like to mention “Si supiera que la extraño”.

His comebacks to the orchestra were received with happiness since singer and leader needed each other.
