The Lord of Tango

Carlos Di Sarli was one of the great figures in our music. For his unique style, he was nicknamed nothing more and nothing less than “El señor del tango”.

Carlos Di Sarli

The people who have made our tango great are so many that we are always short in our attempts to pay tribute to them. Today we want to remember who was rightly nicknamed  “The Lord of Tango”: Carlos Di Sarli. 

Carlos was, in fact, a stage name. His real name was Cayetano and was born on January 7, 1903 in the city of Bahía Blanca (Buenos Aires). He was  a  conductor , composer and pianist , of those who leave their mark where they are heard.  Carlos Di Sarli  came to the world in a family where music had an important place: his brother Domingo was a professor at the Williams Conservatory, Nicolas was a renowned baritone and Roque was a pianist like him.

Carlos, however, made his own way. And, more importantly,  he found his own style.  In his career he went through different orchestras and one of the most important influences he received was Osvaldo Fresedo, but then he differentiated himself and took his own path. Carlos Di Sarli did not fit into the canons of the Old Guard or the Decarian revolution. His style was his, and he wasn't tied to the fashion of the time.

 Di Sarli  's music was special for dance: his orchestra was one of the main cheerleaders of the Carnival dances. He kept a clear pace that helped the beginner dancers and also had enough complexity for the advanced ones.

Thus, “ El señor del tango ” made tango lovers enjoy, dance and dream, and left us that  music  that will remain forever in our ears.
