Singer (23 July 1917 – 8 July 1999)

It was 1991, somebody introduced him to me and time later I saw him again.
It was in his working place, at the Escuela Técnica (Technical School), a branch of the Army located on Cabildo Avenue.
There he worked as barber.
It was by that time that I invited him to my program Siempre el tango (Always tango) on Radio Municipal.
It took place in the early months of 1992, on occasion of celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the premiere of the tango “Malena”.

Miranda recorded “Malena” —after Troilo with Fiorentino had waxed it—, on January 23, 1942. 

He was the first one in singing it but not the first one in committing it to disc.

Marcelo Solis

I was born in Argentina. Through my family and the community that saw my upbringing, I have been intimately involved with the culture of Tango all my life, and have been an Argentine Tango dance performer, choreographer and instructor for over 30 years. I profoundly love Tango dancing, music, and culture, particularly that of the Golden Era. I am a milonguero.
