Hernán Oliva begins playing some tangos at radios (his first performance was Nieblas del Riachuelo), later plays with the Oscar Aleman's Orchestra. In 1958 goes to New York, but he don't likes the "American Way of Life" and returns.
He get some money playing at clubs and boites in Buenos Aires, meanwhile he's considered the best jazz violinist in the world.
"The low and plump man has seated his violin in the sidewalk. He Loads 74 years over his shoulders and walks his music by the streets, hoping one hand that gives him some coins. The night without luck has arrived. Almost nobody already remember him. The cold has begun dangerously to perforate the patches to his soul. It's the daybreak. It is in the district of La Boca, to two meters of La Bombonera (Boca Juniors Football Club Stadium), when the cane breaks, the violin falls down and blows Stardust (Polvo de estrellas) and Fog of the Riachuelo (Nieblas del Riachuelo). It's June 17th 1988. Hernán Oliva is rocking already in silence for always..."
