The imprint that a strong woman leaves on her way through life is indelible. If we talk about strong Argentine women , Tita Merello is one of the first names that come to mind. Because he was born with nothing in his favor and turned his lack into success. Because she became alone, from below, in the world of man-dominated tango , at a time in our history when independent women did not take place.
For all that, today we want to honor her by remembering 6 themes from her repertoire. We hope you enjoy them.
“It is said that I am fierce, that I am on my way to malevo, that I am chueca and that I move with a compadron air,” she sings to the screams Tita Merello, and covers the mouths of those who criticize. A milonga from Francisco Canaro that we all hummed.
Composed by herself and with music by Héctor Stamponi, it was dedicated to her partner Luis Sandrini.
Another classic from Canaro, the letter goes perfect with Merello's style.
From the 1950s film of the same name, it is a tango by Cátulo Castillo y Piana. “Arrabelera, like a vine flower that grew up in the alley...”.
Milonga composed in 1968 for Tita Merello, who premiered it in the film Esto es Alegría , by director Enrique Carreras.
Classic rioplatense in the voice of Tita Merello: “With this tango was born tango and like a cry came out of the sordid neighborhood looking for heaven”.
