February 1, 1930: Birth of Maria Elena Walsh.


February 1, 1930: Birth of  Mary Elena Walsh 

 They told me that in the realm of the other way around 

 no one dances with the feet 

 that one thief is vigilant and another is judge 

 and that two and two are three 

The options are many and the guys change interests very quickly. However, there are songs and authors that go through times and succeed in each of them: María Elena Walsh is our clearest example.

Without strident melodies, with wonderful characters and lyrics with content — and some surrealism — their songs fall in love with children of all generations. And, when they are grown up, these same children discover — perhaps — other senses in these innocent melodies: a social protest about our harsh reality.

María Elena Walsh was born in Ramos Mejía (Buenos Aires) on February 1, 1930. She had no easy life; nothing was easy then for a rebellious, mystical and dreamy woman. But she succeeded: she was a poet, writer, music, singer-songwriter, playwright and composer. And it filled our lives with songs that will always accompany us.
