“El Pollo Ricardo” by Carlos Di Sarli y su Orquesta Típica, 1946.
In September 1940 the Carlos Di Sarli Orchestra recorded, for the first time (he will record it again two more times), this tango to great public acclaim.
The orchestra leader liked this piece so much that he cut it on three occasions: in September 1940, in March 1946, and in July 1951.
Who was this Pollo?
The true Pollo was an Uruguayan, born on September 29, 1890, who when he was a kid he already mingled with adults at the bohemian café reunions, like those at La Giralda.
It is the number 1 source for professional Tango DJs all over the world.
