10 tangos in the voice of Julio Sosa

Julio Sosa, the Man of Tango, left us with his voice some of the best songs of the genre. We remember him on his birthday.


Uruguayan by birth and Argentinian by adoption,  Julio Sosa  is considered one of the great icons of our tango. So much that he was nicknamed no more or less than the  Man of Tango . He was born on February 2, 1926 in a humble family. However, he managed to make his way in music by force of talent, portage and, of course, one of the most emblematic voices of the genre.

In 1949 he arrived in Buenos Aires and joined three orchestras in his 15 years of career: Francini-Pontier (1949-1953), Francisco Rotundo (1953-1955) and Armando Pontier (1955-1960). In the early 1960s, he decided to begin his soloist stage, for which he summoned the bandoneonist   Leopoldo Federico   as the instrumental framework for his performances.

 Julio Sosa  was at the peak of his career when, at the age of 38, he went suddenly in a car accident. Back home, he crashed into the traffic lights of Avenida Figueroa Alcorta and Mariscal Castilla. They say he was particularly affectionate to his colleagues that night, that he had even sung when he never did it in meetings. As if he sensed that his farewell was coming.

Fortunately,  Julio Sosa left us some of the best   versions  of our tango.  That's why, on his birthday, we want to leave you 10 tangos in his voice.
