Argentine Tango School

“Cómo se hace un tango” by Carlos Di Sarli y su Orquesta Típica with Roberto Rufino in vocals, 1943.

Enrique Dizeo, lyricist of Argentine Tango. Portrait.

Enrique Dizeo

Lyricist (July 26, 1893 – May 6, 1980)

In the literature of Tango, he was the author of the longest career because he wrote until very old age, not as frequently as in the old times, and not achieving the popularity of his gone-by hits.

But that did not matter anymore. His name was definitively recorded in the history of Tango using an abundant work in lyrics, of which a good portion was not seized by oblivion.

His plain, direct verses had the ingredient of a colorful expression, with the touching feelings of the street and the neighborhood.

And those city feelings —at their first stage, especially— were spiced with the talk and the knowledge of one who is not only a witness but also a protagonist.
