Celedonio Flores

Poet and lyricist (3 August 1896 – 28 July 1947)

La mariposa is a Tango whose lyrics belong to Celedonio Flores, while the music is authored by Pedro Maffia, and was premiered by Francisco Canaro in the Royal Pigall cabaret in 1921. The first recording was by Carlos Gardel in 1922, making two other records in subsequent years. In addition to the versions of various singers, the instrumental version of Osvaldo Pugliese stands out.

Another great version is the one by Juan Carlos Godoy.
