Jorge Vidal

Singer and composer (12 August 1924 – 14 September 2010)

“From an early age I had a clear position towards life, concerning social and political matters. And I was very lucky, God was always on my side. There were many bitter times, characteristic of the humans, but I was putting them in a corner.”

“Man should always have the interest to continue ahead and to keep on fighting. When he loses his capacity of astonishment, when there is nothing that may draw his attention, when he no longer has an interest that allows him to keep on living with enthusiasm and he doesn’t have strength to improve, well, he’d better kill yourself.”

“With Pugliese I learned, among so many things, to have respect for rhythm. I was very successful alongside him”.

Dante A. Linyera, Argentine Tango poet.

Dante A. Linyera

Lyricist, poet and composer (10 August 1903 – 15 July 1938)

Short was the life of this stubborn bohemian whose biggest sin was living in a hurry and carelessly.

On one occasion he thought over repentance but he continued with no change on his way.

«Damn it! When I recall I was just fourteen when I started with this easy life I feel like killing myself like fools do, but later I smoke a cigarette while saying: That’s it. What can I do?»

He was in a superior level, the master of lunfardo poem.

Unbeatable. An exceptional guy. He was born for this, he came to accomplish his assigned mission.
