“Uno” by Juan D’Arienzo y su Orquesta Típica with Héctor Mauré in vocals, 1943.
Enrique Santos Discépolo
Poet, composer, actor and playwright. (27 March 1901 – 23 December 1951)
Discépolo’s work aroused interest in the field of thought.
The Spaniard Camilo José Cela included him among his preferred popular poets and Ernesto Sábato had no doubt in identifying himself with his pessimistic philosophy.
Another writer from Buenos Aires, Julián Centeya, when reviewing one of his films, talked of «philosophy in small coins», and at the same time was risking an analogy —undoubtedly exaggerated— between Discépolo and… Charlie Chaplin.
