“La capilla blanca” by Carlos Di Sarli y su Orquesta Típica with Alberto Podestá in vocals, 1944.
Singer and composer (22 September 1924 – 9 December 2015)
“One evening somebody brought me a business card, it had been handed to the waiter by a gentleman named Vázquez, that was Carlos Di Sarli’s agent.
He wanted me to meet him at a nearby barroom after my show was over.
In the beginning, I held it in my hands.
As I realized I was creasing it, I put it into my pocket.
Since the time the card was handed to me until the end of my performance that evening my body was shivering.
But I swear that I sang as never before.
Imagine, to have the chance of singing with Di Sarli before I was 18.
It was like a dream come true!”
