Reinaldo Yiso, Argentine Tango lyricist.

Reinaldo Yiso

Lyricist (6 April 1915 – 15 December 1978)

He wrote a great number of tango lyrics with descriptive character, using simple lines.

He never made use of the metaphor to embellish his pieces.

Most of his lyrics expressed his own feelings or somebody else’s, and as well others depicted passions and popular controversies.

His contribution to tango is evidenced in the great number of pieces he wrote, always keeping the peculiar style of humble poet.

His lyrics summarize emotions and passions akin to the feeling of the Buenos Aires inhabitant.

According to evidence filed in SADAIC, Yiso filed 532 titles, out of which 143 are unpublished, 114 were published, 109 were recorded and 166 were published and recorded.

Roberto Díaz

Singer and composer (5 April 1900 – 2 December 1961)

One of the so many ideas that arose from Francisco Canaro and that allowed his name to be forever in the history of Tango was when the orchestras —all with only instrumental charts— included a new member: the singer that until then always appeared as soloist.

Then, timidly, the orchestra singers, the estribillistas (the refrain singers) appeared. The tango pieces already included their lyrics but on stage only a few lines of them were sung.

Roberto Díaz was the first vocalist, according to what Canaro himself said in his book of memoirs.

He insisted that with it the orchestra would sound fuller, and would provide a different mood in the recording sessions.

This young pioneer singer had already recorded as a soloist with other lineups, but these outfits played an accompaniment, the vocalist was neither a piece nor another member of them.

Music: Osvaldo Donato. Lyrics: Sandalio Gómez.

Sharpen this milonga
That has already started.
I felt that those bellows that grumble
From the heart.

And the girls have come
in “true Vuitton”.
Tango flatters life
And in his notes he scatters
his love.

Cute tango from the suburb
That I,
I haven’t seen him pass out
Triumphed!

Cute tango that when singing
Overturned,
His faith, his love.
A man you have to be.

Hugo Baralis, Argentine Tango violinist, leader and arranger.

Hugo Baralis

Violinist, leader and arranger (2 April 1914 – 4 February 2002)

In 1936, his friend Anibal Troilo, who had already put together his own orchestra, summoned Hugo Baralis to join it.

This association not only identified him with the same musical sensitivity, but also with the codes of life and the bohemian spirit so special of that generation.

This tenure lasted until August 1943. Notwithstanding this, their friendship lasted until Troilo’s death.

Alberto Vaccarezza, Argentine Tango lyricist, and theatre writer.

Alberto Vaccarezza

Lyricist and theatre writer (1 April 1886 – 6 August 1959)

He was the creator of the sainete (one-act farce) in Argentina.

He was deep in the heart of the people.

The heavy aspects of such a situation were exactly captured by Vaccarezza, but he also had the wit to stage them without their drama. His plays included the bad guys and the good ones, but when tragedy was near, because guns or knives were shown, the brave opponents gave over or somebody made them understand. The endings were always happy and romantic.

His oeuvre represents, in spite of its lightness, a faithful document of the period. About the time when the immigration flow forced the newly arrived people to live stacked, suffering with the difficulties of the language and the diversity of cultures, added to the despair of the present and the uncertainty of the future.

Vaccarezza was a prolific author of tango lyrics.

Like Luis César AmadoriManuel Romero and Mario Battistella he reached song writing by means of theater.
