CÁTULO CASTILLO is born. Composer and poet who paid homage to tango with a vast and sophisticated work: more than one hundred themes. He knew how to evoke the nostalgia porteña like no other. In TINTA ROJA he wrote: ”Where is my neighborhood?/Who stole my childhood?/In which corner, oh my moon/your clear cheerfulness/is pouring?” His creativity he devoted to tango and to a few valses.

ESTAMPA FEDERAL. Carlos Di Sarli and Alberto Podestá (1942)
