Birth of ARMANDO TAGINI, poet, singer and actor. However wrongly little remembered, he obtained his greatest distinction as tango lyricist. In his first two tangos, LA GAYOLA and GLORIA, he used the “lunfardo”. Soon these two pieces were recorded by Carlos Gardel. Using refined Spanish, he composed two beautiful watercolors “porteños”: MARIONETA and what is playing now.
