“Yo soy el Tango” by Aníbal Troilo y su Orquesta Típica with Francisco Fiorentino in vocals, 1941.

Music: Domingo Federico. Lyrics: Homero Expósito.

“I am
the milongón tango
born in the suburbs
malevos and murky.

Today,
that I am in the dance hall,
they know me tamed,
sweet and tired.
What to believe for,
why lie
that I am changed,
if I am the same as yesterday.

Listen to my song.

Don’t you see that I am gotán?

I break in my song
like a steel dagger
to sing a betrayal.
I like to compadrear,
I’m brave for dancing
listen to my song:

I am the old tango
born in the suburbs.”

Juan Carlos Cobián

Pianist, leader, composer and lyricist (31 May 1896 – 10 December 1953)

In 1916, he joined a trio with Eduardo Arolas on bandoneon and Tito Roccatagliatta on violin, at the stage of the cabaret Montmartre, shared with Pepita Avellaneda, the first woman who sang publicly tangos.

That same year he had to comply with the military service, but he postponed it on his own decision and had to inevitably serve three years later, generally under arrest.

What gave him good reasons to compose then his later famous “A pan y agua”.

After over a year serving in the Infantry Regiment 2, he got the discharge he was longing for and went on with his normal life, that is to say, the one he led protected by night shadows, among good tangos, good whisky and beautiful girls.

Later withdrew from musical activity voluntarily, confining himself in his humble little apartment placed on Montevideo street.
