Poet, composer, actor and playwright. One of the milestones of the tango lyrics. He developed each tango as a perfect unit of lyrics and music, and managed to make of his short stories an authentic River Plate of human comedies. Among his most important compositions are: "Yira Yira", "Esta noche me emborracho", "Qué vachaché", "Cambalache".
