"Pájaro ciego" by Anibal Troilo y su Orquesta Típica with Amadeo Mandarino and Francisco Fiorentino in vocals, 1941.

Amadeo Mandarino, Argentine Tango singer.

Amadeo Mandarino

Singer (22 May 1913 - 12 June 1996)

He was an interpreter with a gentle voice, a baritone register, with a very good intonation and a phrasing quiet typical of the city of Buenos Aires, to which we must add his affable personality and his great sense of friendship.

In the early 1940 he was summoned by his friend Aníbal Troilo to be vocalist in his orchestra along with Francisco Fiorentino.

His tenure lasted nearly two years, and he split on December 31, 1941.

In a duo with Fiorentino he committed to record only one number: Antonio Bonavena’s and Lito Bayardo’s tango “Pájaro ciego”, recorded on May 28, 1941.

Apparently, a requisite of the Victor company was the reason that he had not recorded more numbers, because they preferred Fiorentino for his cashbox hits.

The singer’s withdrawal did not influence his friendship with Pichuco and with Fiore at all.
