Carlos Gardel

He is the best known representative (of the genre) in the history of tango.


Carlos Gardel was a singer, songwriter and film actor. He is the best known representative (of the genre) in the history of tango. Initiator and maximum exponent of tango song, he was one of the most important performers of world popular music in the first half of the twentieth century, for the quality of his voice, for the number of albums sold (such as  singer  and as a composer), for his many films related to  tango  and for its global impact.

 Gardel  's person and image has been the object of popular idolatry, especially in Argentina and Uruguay, placing it in a place of myth and cultural symbol that still remains valid.

In 2003 the voice of  Gardel  was registered by Unesco in the Memory of the World program, dedicated to the preservation of documents belonging to the historical heritage of the peoples of the world.
