“Farol” by Osvaldo Pugliese y su Orquesta Típica with Roberto Chanel, 1943.

Of the greatest importance was, when his orchestra finally recorded in 1943, the arrival of Roberto Chanel, tough singer, with nasal sound and compadrito style, who left 31 recordings.

Among the subsequent singers outstand, although with repertories of irregular quality, Jorge Maciel and Miguel Montero. Read more

I was born in Argentina. Through my family and the community that saw my upbringing, I have been intimately involved with the culture of Tango all my life, and have been an Argentine Tango dance performer, choreographer and instructor for over 30 years. I profoundly love Tango dancing, music, and culture, particularly that of the Golden Era. I am a milonguero.
