Roberto Chanel, Argentine Tango singer and composer.

Roberto Chanel

Singer, composer and lyricist (26 November 1914 – 24 July 1972)

He was an excellent, delicate singer with a warm tenderness, a typical symbol of his period.

With Pugliese, he recorded 31 tunes, among those which stand out we like to share today “Fuimos”.

For the connoisseurs, he was the best Pugliese’s vocalist, the one who best and with the highest finesse represented the maestro.

With his nasal sound, canyengue, and common man’s diction, he kept alive the popular roots that gave rise to tango music.

Chanel identified himself as an orchestra instrument, in the manner of a viola, as can be verified since his first recording.

Celedonio Flores, Argentine Tango poet and lyricist.

Celedonio Flores

Poet and lyricist (August 3, 1896 – July 28, 1947)

Born in Buenos Aires, in the Villa Crespo neighborhood, natives and immigrants of various origins co-existed.

His childhood and adolescence were spent in such a popular environment until he became a famous poet and lyric composer in his 20s.

His tangos, often full of condemnation, moral reflections, and masterful descriptions of his characters, resorted heavily to the lunfardo, the local dialect/slang.

Flores was an educated and popular poet like other famous lyricists and composers.

A bohemian, also a boxer. His most creative time extended until the early 30s, but his work survived.

“Corrientes y Esmeralda” (a famous corner in Buenos Aires) is one of Celedonio Flores’ greatest hits.

“Escúchame Manón” by Osvaldo Pugliese y su Orquesta Típica with Roberto Chanel in vocals, 1947 (English translation).

Listen to me Manón

Music: Francisco Pracánico. Lyrics: Roberto Chanel / Claudio Frollo.

When you know that my love is full of truth
your fear, your indifference will pass.
The love that I gave you nestled in my chest,
Don’t you feel sad you may die of pain?
Round my nights, your wavy hair
and the sweetness of your voice caress me.
While the light that is reflected in your pupils
tells me: my heart is yours.

Listen to me Manón, and let yourself be loved,
remove your stubborn concern, your suffering.
The future is ours, I see it in your eyes,
I see my hopes of loving in you.

My dreams return; you appear in my life
and accuse me of the sadness in your voice.
I feel the torture of jealousy
in my soul, and my heart suffers a lot.

“Qué bien te queda” by Osvaldo Pugliese y su Orquesta Típica with Roberto Chanel in vocals, 1943 (with English translation of the lyrics).

Vinyl record of the Argentine Tango

Qué bien te queda (Cómo has cambiado)

Music: Vicente Salerno. Lyrics: Juan Mazaroni.

Brother, modernism has defeated you,
your figure from yesterday also changed,
It only remains in your melodious bars
the past heart to heart.

You already walked away from the suburb that saw you
under the throbbing light of a lantern,
that outlined your whimsical figure
dancing to the chords, from a little organ to the beat.

How good it fits you, how much you have changed,
and in this framework of distinction,
you are entangling the hearts
between laments of a bandoneon.

The skyscrapers full of wonder
wearing tuxedo, they see you coming.

How good it looks for you, Argentine Tango,
soul song, immortal song…
