Raúl Berón

Singer (30 March 1920 – 28 June 1982)

He was, for some people, the best orchestra singer in the history of tango.

Although other major vocalists rival him this position in the opinion of the connoisseurs.

In an undeniable Gardelian tradition, tenor register and velvet sound, his peak in popularity coincided exactly with the period of greatest popularity for tango: from his inclusion in the Miguel Caló orchestra in 1939 until his withdrawal from the Aníbal Troilo orchestra in 1955.
