DYM - Tangonews 24th of June

Dear friends of Tango Argentino!

11.11.1890 - 24.06.1935

These dates mark the birth and death of one of the best-known and sparkling personalities of TANGO ARGENTINO, called “El Zorzal Criollo” :

Charles Romuald Gardès, or CARLOS GARDEL

This newsmail wants to remember the ill-starred day 69 years ago, when a plane accident in Medellin/ Colombia caused the tragic death of Carlos Gardel.

The following CDs is one of the best collections of his work and it contains the famous song “SILENCIO” which is played continuously close to the Gardel statue at ‘La Chacarita’ the cemetery of Buenos Aires. The statue always holds a lighted cigarette as a gesture of the artist’s immortality.


A different sort of resuscitation was made by the small label “MYRON RECORDS” from Belgium by finally re-releasing the CD “Liberata” of the Quintetto TANGO AL SUR. The first CD “Van Esbroeck; Masondo” is still very popular


and now there is also more of the Flemish tango:
