Argentine Tango School

"Amarras" by Juan D'Arienzo y su Orquesta Típica with Héctor Mauré in vocals, 1944.

Héctor Mauré, Argentine Tango singer and composer.

Héctor Mauré

Singer and composer (13 March 1920 - 12 May 1976)

His interpretation was dramatic and at the same time, melodic.

A peculiar voice, with a baritone-tenor range, pleasant timbre, clear diction, strong voice, melodious and pleasing intonation, clearly influenced by Gardel.

Since a singer split with the orchestra of Juan D'Arienzo, the leader started to look after his replacement.

The audition was held in the B room of Radio El Mundo, where numerous applicants were present.

Nearly at the end, the chance for our singer came, and he sang accompanied on piano by Fulvio Salamanca, who was tired of so much work.

When he heard him, Fulvio recovered and looked up towards where D'Arienzo was; then he encouraged the boy: "Come on, boy, you already persuaded the maestro!".

His last recording with D'Arienzo was on July 21, 1944, with the tango “Amarras”.
