6 tangos by Tita Merello

The lady of tango par excellence has an extensive repertoire that she left as a legacy. Today we chose 6 tangos from Tita Merello to honor her.


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.

1. It's said about me

“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.

2. Passion Flare

Composed by herself and with music by Héctor Stamponi, it was dedicated to her partner Luis Sandrini.

3. Good child

Another classic from Canaro, the letter goes perfect with Merello's style.

4. Tarrabalera

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...”.

5. The milonga and me

Milonga composed in 1968 for Tita Merello, who premiered   it in the film Esto es Alegría  , by director Enrique Carreras.

6. The choclo

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”.
