DDPs Favorite Tandas:
Di Sarli

Di Sarli: Vocals with Roberto Rufino

Griseta (1941)
Esta noche de luna (1943)
Tristeza marina (1943)
Verdemar (1943)

Roberto Rufino is one of Carlos Di Sarli‘s iconic vocalists of the 1940s. This tanda begins with the tragic “Griseta” and from there the romantic mood builds…and it seems to take on a “marine” theme. One my favorite lines in “Esta noche de luna” is “I am a star out at sea.” “Tristeza marina,” is about a sailor whose woman leaves him because he loves the sea more than her…and in “Verdemar” the title lady’s name means “Seagreen.”
