José Bohr

Singer, composer, lyricist, actor and leader (September 3, 1901 - May 29, 1994)

He began to carry out his career as a singer on Radio Cultura, accompanying himself on the piano.

One day, he was in his job —Bohr will remember in his memoirs— he received the following phone call:

—Che, tell me. You're the kid of the radio. Aren't you? Don't you know who you're talking to? You're speaking with the most famous voice in Argentina. You're talking to Carlitos Gardel. They told me that you wrote an amazing tango with much soul and that it's very romantic, something that has to do with the carnival.

—"Cascabelito"? Bohr dared to say timidly.
