Ricardo Ruiz

(28 July 1914 – 20 April 1976)

His tenor range, his intonation and his delicate way of saying were virtues that maestro Osvaldo Fresedo took into consideration to summon him.

He and Ray became the two vocalists most representative of Fresedo’s. No other one was capable of displacing them.

This tenure nearly lasted three years and recorded 28 numbers more, among which stand out the beautiful tango  “Rosarina linda”.

Carnival in Argentina

Music & lyrics: José Amuchástegui Keen.

Our carnival was not much different.

The most popular fancy costumes were those of Colombine, Pierrot, (Italian) cocoliche, harlequin, clown, the dangerous grizzly bear —whose use was banned because on several occasions they were set on fire (the costumes were made of wool and would burn soon—; and many others. 

Even a simple mask added to plain clothes meant some kind of sympathetic support.
