Birth of ENRIQUE SANTOS DISCÉPOLO. Poet, composer, playwright and actor. Son of a Neapolitan musician. He was educated under the guard of his elder and only brother, Armando, a distinguished playwright.  Enrique soon became a great tango artist. He writes the lyrics and gives the melody he imagines, to someone else to be written. This is the case of the theme we are now listening to, although it was almost never sung.
