Argentine Tango School

“El Pollo Ricardo” by Carlos Di Sarli y su Orquesta Típica, 1946.

"El Pollo Ricardo", Argentine Tango music sheet cover.

A story of two friends

In September 1940, the Carlos Di Sarli Orchestra recorded this tango to great public acclaim for the first time (he will re-record it two more times).

The orchestra leader liked this piece so much that he cut it on three occasions: in September 1940, March 1946, and July 1951.

Who was this Pollo?

The true Pollo was a Uruguayan, born on September 29, 1890, who, when he was a kid, already mingled with adults at the bohemian café reunions like those at La Giralda.
