Argentine Tango School

“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 (May 22, 1913 – June 12, 1996)

He was an interpreter with a gentle voice, a baritone register, a perfect intonation, and a phrasing typical of Buenos Aires, to which we must add his pleasant personality and 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.

A requisite of the Victor company was why 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 or Fiore.
