José Canet

Guitar player, leader, composer and lyricist (15 December 1915 - 10 March 1984)

His style was deeply rooted and directly based on the classic guitar groups.

On many of his performances, he added to the guitar trio or quartet other string instruments: contrabass, violins, and violoncello.

His vocation awakened at age twelve.

He made tours of many countries in Latin America.

In Cuba, his success was amazing, with a lot of journeys and a great number of recordings.

During one of those tours, Canet composed one of his most famous tangos: “La abandoné y no sabía”, in Chile in 1943.

He was a prolific composer.
