Born in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Balvanera, he studied violin and bandoneon, working with important orchestras beginning in 1926.
With His Own Orchestras
Caló formed his first ochestra in 1929, which he then dissolved in order to join the orchestra of the pianist and poet, Cátulo Castillo, with whom he toured in Spain. The brothers Ricardo and Alfredo Malerba as well as the singer Roberto Maida also participated in that tour.
Upon Returning to Buenos Aires Caló formed a new orchestra with the bandoneonist Domingo Cuestas, the violinists Domingo Varela Conte, Hugo Gutiérrez, and Enrique Valtri, the contrabassist Enzo Ricci, and the pianist Luis Brighenti. Caló eventually left this orchestra to join Osvaldo Fresedo's group, with which he toured the United States.
