One of the features de ning the cinematographic music created in Argentina, putative home town of cradleless Gallegos, is the use of the tango; a native dance from Buenos Aires or Montevideo, full with illogical movements, that Argentinian and Uruguayan musicians use to develop a great deal of their ideas.  e tango and the bolero (Porteño feeling)  ow over the stave of memories, that the musician, standard-bearer of the native folk heterodoxy, arranges smartly with the notes hidden behind the piano and the bandoneon, warranties of a tradition intertwining cleverly legend and modernity. As the great Buenos Aires poet Enrique Santos Dicépolo, songwriter of Cambalache, said: the tango is a sad feeling one can dance. In this musical set up takes place Painted Lips’ story, a  lm based in the homonymous novel by writer Manuel Puig, which was taken to the screen in 1977 by Argentinian director Leopoldo Torre Nilsson.

Painted Lips becomes the witness of a very singular way of writing (the Spanish way), whose banner Waldo de los Ríos was carrying during a period mastered by the greatest in European cinematographic music. Among tango, bolero and memories, we  nd out the voice of a composer who was as original as he was misunderstood; who made of  e Ode a hymn, and of Freedom a motto. He captured those ideas soundly throughout his meagre  lm work. Tragedy put an end to a brilliant career which had le  an imprint in history, not only in audiovisual media music, meeting place and space for creative communion, but also as a music arranger for some of our country’s most successful singers. Among tango, bolero and memories, in deed...
