An older brother had a bandoneon who played a few notes on it but he taught Luis the little he knew.

He composed several tangos: “Yo tengo un puñal” among them.

Carlos Acuña. Argentine music at Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires

“Canción de rango (Pa’ que se callen)” by Rodolfo Biagi y su Orquesta Típica with Carlos Acuña in vocals, 1943. (English translation of the lyrics)

Carlos Acuña. Argentine music at Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires.“Que bailen los que vienen pa’ bailar,
que escuchen los que quieran escuchar.

Pa’ todos hay un tango acompasado,
pretencioso y retobado
reinando en mi ciudad.
Yo canto porque vivo la emoción
del tango cadencioso y compadrón.
Yo canto cuando alguno pega el grito
que hay un tango compadrito
buscando un corazón.

Pa’ que se callen los que andan divulgando
que el tango es triste, que es danza y son del fango.
Pa’ que se callen les voy pasando el dato:
mi tango es danza triste, pero es canción de rango.
Pa’ que se callen les mando en dos por cuatro,
esta cadencia viril que se hace canto.
Si son sensibles, verán que no es del fango
aquel que envuelve en tangos su corazón.

Que bailen los que vienen pa’ bailar,
que sigan escuchando los demás.
Hoy tengo la emoción envuelta en tango
y es por eso que me agrando
al son de su compás.
Yo canto porque vivo la emoción
del tango cadencioso y compadrón.
Yo canto cuando alguno pega el grito
que hay un tango compadrito
buscando un corazón.”

English translation:

Let those who come to dance, dance;
listen, those who want to listen.
For all there is a rhythmic tango,
pretentious and indomitable
reigning in my city.
I sing, because I live the emotion
of the rhythmic and courageous tango.
I sing when someone shouts out
that there is a tango compadrito
looking for a heart.

For those who are saying
that the tango is sad, that it is dance and a song of the mud.
To make them keep quiet I will have them know:
My tango is a sad dance, but it is a song of rank.
To make them stop talking, I send it in two by four,
this masculine cadence that becomes a song.
If they are sensitive, you will see that it is not from the mud
the one who wraps his heart in tangos.

Let those who come to dance, dance,
and the others continue to listen.
Today I have my emotion wrapped in tango
and that’s why I’m enjoying it
to the sound of his compass.
I sing because I live the emotion
of the rhythmic and courageous tango.
I sing when someone shouts
that is a tango compadrito
looking for a heart.

Tango 1942
