“Ninguna” by Ángel D’Agostino y su Orquesta Típica with Ángel Vargas in vocals, 1942.
Singer, lyricist and composer (22 October 1904 – 7 July 1959)
In 1940 he would commence his fundamental period when entering the orchestra led by the pianist Ángel D’Agostino with whom he would stay until 1946, producing 94 renditions on record which stand as legitimate jewels in the genre.
A singer with an impressive personality, he is the symbol of porteño (from Buenos Aires) tango phrasing in the 40s.
His phrasing was reo and compadrito but at the same time of an infinite good taste.
Angel Vargas died young and still without a very noticeable decline as interpreter; he was, no doubt, one of the major artists in our tango music.
Among his recordings, stands out “Ninguna”.
