Juan Carlos Marambio Catán

Singer, lyricist, composer and actor (30 July 1895 – 15 February 1973)

Of all Marambio Catán’s activities it is impossible to omit his contribution as author.

Because of that he is remembered today, in a dictum that is not unfair, but it is indeed not thoroughly thought over when all his fame in this sense is based in the memory of three or four pieces.

“Acquaforte” with music by Horacio Pettorossi, his most widely known creation which was a hit in the songbooks of Gardel and Magaldi was born in Europe.

Let us add the lyrics of several tangos which became famous in their instrumental versions, such as “El monito”, “Buen amigo” or “El choclo”.

Argentine Tango Technique 9: Forward ochos with Marcelo Solis.

Argentine Tango dance technique 9: Forward ocho

  • From this forward step to the next position going forward, in which you will transfer your weight to this now front foot, your torso is already rotating towards the center of the couple, so the foot that remains behind, by the pull of this torsion, which gets the shape of a spiral, turns your back foot, first, inside edge in contact with the floor, and then, makes it travel next to your sagittal line, to the “collect/inside edge position”.
  • After this “collect/inside edge position”, we research in these possibilities: 1. Forward ocho: Pivot more continuing on the same direction of your stablished rotation and move your free of weight foot forward, aligned with your lower sagittal plane, your torso torquing according to counter body movement, orientating the center of your chest to the central axis of the couple.
