orn in the Bajo Flores neighborhood on one Sunday morning in March 1980, this beloved son of night, builder of a dark, suburban oeuvre, does not recognize his direct origins in tango lyrics. «Tango floated in the environments where I was born, my grandparents came to know and became close friends of notable figures, but the aesthetics I try to find has to do more with cinema and literature than with tango lyrics». Furthermore, in his quest two fundamental names resound: Leonardo Favio and Juan Carlos Onetti.

His aesthetics is the palette which guides debauchery, his colors find the primitive clay of creation in the sweaty, bloodstained mirror of Gatica, el Mono, Juntacadáveres, El que tiene sed or in that excerpt of unmeasurable porteña tenderness which Raúl González Tuñón left for us in El banco en la plaza or A la sombra de los barrios amados. Something like the darkness of a wild child with his liver congested with black birds.

In his tango lyrics, in his poetry, those faces ignored by the young, hopeful aesthetics which television shows every passing minute wake up, neither toothpaste nor soaps nor deodorants, but toothless girls and boys who wander along the terrible hallway of long insomnias, of asylums, of orphanages and of jails. And barrooms are there too. It is impossible to understand his poetics without the ambiance of the barrooms he frequents, without understanding in what places he sits to write, surrounded by so many night ghosts, allowing himself to be tamed or punishing the devils of alcohol.

It is impossible to understand his poetry without passing by, even though on bus, near the barrooms in Constitución or on Rodríguez Peña 519 (now turned into a pathetic en passant pizza shop) where he came to know his admired Nacho Wisky, Pajarito Zaguri and Nico Favio on afternoons and evenings plenty of wine and guitars. Because his steps are always searching for ruined bars or the ones that are about to be tumbled down by a pick-axe, where he sees himself in worn-out, aged faces, or in the hands that tremble because of the winds of alcohol, either in Buenos Aires, in La Habana (Havana) or in the Ciudad Vieja (Old City) of Montevideo

Self-taught, he wrote lyrics for songs, tangos, milongas and zambas together with outstanding musicians like Jorge Giuliano, Agustín Gómez, Fernando Tato Finocchi, Néstor Basurto, Roberto Calvo, Leandro Nikitoff, Nico Favio, Marcelo Saraceni, José Arenas, Fabián Villalón, Jesús Hidalgo, Adrián Lacruz, Guido Iacopetti, Enrique Giuliano, Martín Machuca, Nehuén Martino and Oscar Cerrizuela.

It took place at the La Casa de Las Américas de La Habana (Cuba), in October, in an encounter named Encuentro Voces Populares, in which Tania Libertad and Jorge Drexler were also featured. In 2016 the duo introduced his new show: Con los sueños puestos.

In early 2016, along with Martín Pitu Frontera, he released Lo que ni el diablo pudo. Un homenaje a los barrios. He also appeared at the Festival de Tango Independiente and at the Festivals of Caballito, Barracas, Flores, La Boca and Parque Patricios.
