Argentine Tango School

"Mendocina" by Edgardo Donato y su Orquesta Típica with Romeo Gavioli in vocals, 1942.

Romeo Gavioli, Argentine Tango singer and musician.

Romeo Gavioli

Singer, violinist, composer and bandleader (February 5, 1913 - April 17, 1957)

He represents the archetype of the style in vogue during the forties, with his voice expressing an introspective feeling through delicate phrasing and exquisite musicality.

His way of interpretation carries us to a pleasant, warm mood that makes us remember those light tenors that preceded him.

In 1939, Edgardo Donato summoned him to appear as a singer in his orchestra, along with the other vocalists, Lita Morales and Horacio Lagos, who were wife and husband.

Most of the numbers he recorded, 15, are duets or trios with the other singers.

As a soloist, he only recorded three pieces: the waltz “Mendocina” among them.
