Argentine Tango School

“Vieja luna” by Carlos Di Sarli y su Orquesta Típica with Jorge Durán in vocals, 1945.

Argentine Tango lyricist Celedonio Flores with singer Carlos Gardel.

Celedonio Flores

Poet and lyricist (August 3, 1896 – July 28, 1947)

When asked in an interview about how he created his successful works, Celedonio Flores answered:

“I search for a piece of life, I live it through in my mind, I take it seriously, and then slowly and carefully I put to work with the lyrics”.

And continued: “As I have had my own experiences and wandered around, as I’ve met scoundrels myself, I can boast of having lived a thousand characters. I am not one of those who believe that the funny tango reflects people’s feelings. We all know that tango is sad as any other music of ours”.

Among his creations, we can mention “Muchacho”, “El bulín de la calle Ayacucho”, “Corrientes y Esmeralda”, “Atenti pebeta”, and the tango we share with you today, “Vieja luna”, by Carlos Di Sarli.
