Argentine Tango School

"Así se baila el Tango" by Ricardo Tanturi y su Orquesta Típica with Alberto Castillo in vocals, 1942.

Alberto Castillo, Argentine Tango singer.

Alberto Castillo

Singer, actor, composer and lyricist (December 7, 1914 - July 23, 2002)

Alberto Castillo's distinctive style perhaps finds its roots in the whimsically humorous charm prevalent in the backgrounds of Rosita Quiroga, Sofía Bozán, or Tita Merello. However, it's crucial to note that these figures do not serve as influences on Castillo, as there exists neither a discernible similarity among them nor does Castillo bear any resemblance to them. Rather, they can be grouped together—alongside the subsequent addition of Elba Berón—due to a shared essence characterized by an unrefined cadence.

What ties them together is not an influence but a common atmosphere, a shared unpolished rhythm.

Yet, when Alberto Castillo delves into profound themes, the remarkable tenderness he imparts becomes evident.

In essence, he is a "voice that resonates unlike any other," echoing the profound words of the unforgettable Julián Centeya.
