Cátulo Castillo, Argentine Tango lyricist and composer, and Perón, Argentine president.

Cátulo Castillo

Poet, lyricist, composer, and director (August 6, 1906 – October 19, 1975)

An astonishing fact is that Cátulo could have been, at the same time, an inspired musician and poet, and a renowned boxer who came to win the title of Argentine featherweight champion.

His political commitment to the exploited inspired his early works, but he would also contribute emblematic works for other issues.

Such is the case of “Caserón de tejas”, a beautiful waltz from 1941, with music by Sebastián Piana, where longing for the neighborhood and childhood merge.

Other of his important works are “Tinta Roja” and “María”.
