José Canet

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

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

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

His vocation awakened at age twelve.

He made tours of many countries in Latin America.

In Cuba, his success was terrific, with a lot of journeys and a significant 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.
