Enrique Domingo Cadícamo

(July 15, 1900 – December 3, 1999)

He was a prolific Argentine Tango lyricist, poet, and novelist.

From an initial Symbolist bent, he developed a distinctive, lunfardo-rich style from an early age, and by 1925 he had his first piece, Pompas de jabón”, sung by Carlos Gardel.

Other notable compositions include Madame Ivonne”, “Che, papusa, oí”, “Anclado en París”Muñeca brava”Pa’ que bailen los muchachos”Los mareados”, and the song we share with you today, “Dice un refrán”, with music by Ángel D’Agostino.
