Calendario Milonguero

ENRIQUE CADÍCAMO dies. Poet, writer and playwright. He is the lyricist with the highest number of themes under his belt: both because of his talent and because of the length of his life (he was born in 1900). Among his unedited, edited and recorded lyrics the number is more than 1000. He lived like a dandy. The tango that we have chosen, he titled LOS DOPADOS. When they censored it, he went to see the person responsible of having prohibited it, and told him that he was an ignorant.

♫ LOS MAREADOS. Aníbal Troilo and Francisco Fiorentino (1942)
