Calendario Milonguero

HÉCTOR MARCÓ dies. Singer and lyricist. Because of an affection to his vocal chords he stopped singing very early. He distinguished himself as a writer of “porteño” portraits. Suffice it to say that he was Carlos Di Sarli’s favorite author. Some examples: BIEN FRAPPÉ, PORTEÑO Y BAILARÍN, EN UN BESO LA VIDA. He wrote also CORAZÓN, the first tango recorded by the maestro. Also, the jewel we are listening to here.

♫ CUANDO EL AMOR MUERE. Carlos Di Sarli and Carlos Acuña (1941)
