Romeo Gavioli, Argentine Tango singer and musician.

Romeo Gavioli

Singer, violinist, composer and bandleader (February 5, 1913 – April 17, 1957)

He represents the archetype of the style in vogue during the forties, with his voice expressing an introspective feeling through delicate phrasing and exquisite musicality.

His way of interpretation carries us to a pleasant, warm mood that makes us remember those light tenors that preceded him.

In 1939, Edgardo Donato summoned him to appear as a singer in his orchestra, along with the other vocalists, Lita Morales and Horacio Lagos, who were wife and husband.

Most of the numbers he recorded, 15, are duets or trios with the other singers.

As a soloist, he only recorded three pieces: the waltz “Mendocina” among them.

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”.

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