Argentine Tango School

"El Cachafaz" by Carlos Di Sarli y su Orquesta Típica, 1953.

El Cachafaz & Carmencita Calderon, legends of Argentine Tango.

Ovidio José Benito Bianquet

Dancer (February 14, 1885 – February 7, 1942)

His story is part of the Tango mythology, a legend; today, very few who have witnessed his life or art remain.

His image was captured in the film Tango, which premiered in 1933, where he can be seen with his partner Carmencita Calderón, just a girl under 20 years old.

His nickname remained for our everyday history as his definitive first and last names: El Cachafaz.
