PLAYLIST:

  • El Criollito Oriental, meaning ‘Kid From Uruguay’; recorded by Pedro Laurenz on 1 March 1944; a milonga with music composed by Alberto Mastra, lyrics by Alberto Mastra, and sung by Alberto Podestá. Uruguay was the most eastern of the provinces of the Spanish Empire in South America and its official name is the Oriental Republic of Uruguay. The title of the song more accurately translates as ‘The Young Man Of Uruguay’.
  • Mocosita, meaning ‘Young Girl’; recorded by Alfredo De Angelis on 20 April 1949; a tango with music composed by Gerardo Matos Rodríguez in 1926, lyrics by Victor Soliño, and sung by Carlos Dante. Meaning ‘brat’, the title is a term of endearment for a young girl, although it all ends badly for the payador who loves her.
  • Engominado, meaning ‘Pimped’; recorded by Juan D’Arienzo in 1928; a tango with music composed by Fernando Montoni, first recorded in 1928, lyrics by Maximo José Orsi, and sung by Carlos Dante. Literally meaning ‘Gummed’, in reference to the brilliantine hair pomade worn by young men in the early part of the 20th century; ‘Pimped’ is more meaningful in the 21st century.
  • El Carrerito, meaning ‘The Carter’; recorded by Rafael Canaro in 1929; a tango with music composed by Raúl Joaquín De Los Hoyos in 1928, lyrics by Alberto Vacarezza, and sung by Carlos Dante.
  • Soñar Y Nada Más, meaning ‘To Dream And Nothing More’; recorded by Alfredo De Angelis on 29 August 1944; a vals with music composed by Francisco Canaro, first recorded in 1943, lyrics by Ivo Pelay, and sung by Carlos Dante and Julio Martel.
  • Soy Un Arlequin, meaning ‘I Am A Harlequin’; recorded by Alfredo De Angelis on 11 September 1945; a tango with music composed by Enrique Santos Discépolo in 1928, lyrics by Enrique Santos Discépolo, and sung by Carlos Dante.

  •  A Evaristo Carriego; recorded live from a performance by Tango Enigmático at The Glasshouse, Brisbane on 5 May 2019; a concierto with music composed by Eduardo Rovira, first recorded in 1969. The name is a reference to Evaristo Carriego, the nationalist Argentine poet who also influenced tango lyrics.
