Argentine Tango School

"Mañana zarpa un barco" by Carlos Di Sarli y su Orquesta Típica with Roberto Rufino in vocals, 1942.

Roberto Rufino, Argentine Tango singer and composer.

Roberto Rufino

Singer and composer (6 January 1922 - 24 February 1999)

Listening to Roberto Rufino when he sang any of the tangos he had chosen for his repertoire, was to realize that that tango was unraveling little by little and that the words sprang up separately, without forsaking the whole that gathered them, with the proper strength they had to have in their context.

Rufino was that: a storyteller, a phraser, an interpreter that perfectly knew which was the meaning of what he was singing.

Fame had already touched him with its magic wand and at the age of 21 or 22, he had an unprecedented discographic record.

In fact, he recorded, together with Di Sarli, forty-six numbers.
