Carlos di Sarli

Carlos Di Sarli was an Argentine tango musician, orchestra leader, composer and pianist.

His early music had fairly simple rhythms; unfortunately, many of these recordings are poor quality. As he matured, Di Sarli's music became more lyrical and playful; however, he maintained a clear rhythm which gives an easy, danceable sound for beginners and sufficient complexity and variation for the more advanced dancers. For these reasons, he is played regularly in milongas for social tango dancing.

Di Sarli always avoided the extremes of the evocative traditional tango and the avant-garde, preferring to forge his own style without concession to the fashions of the day. He recorded many numbers more than once, perhaps with different singers. Across different recordings of the same instrumental title, little difference is heard although he is seen as "innovating." Such is his reputation in the genre, his nackname was El Senor del Tango (Lord of Tango).
