Carlos Gardel, the major singer in the history of tango, started singing folklore. And in the 2x4 he started singing “My sad night”. It was in 1917.
We all believe that Gardel was born singing tango . That before she said “Mom,” she sang “My sad night.” Well, at least I thought so. But no. It turns out that " The Creole Thrush " was a folklore singer, when he crossed Pascual Contursi in a milonga.
Legend has it that Contursi had put some of his verses to the tango “Lita”. Thus creating a new version. Called “My Sad Night.” Which premiered, with a lot, success in Montevideo . Excited, when he returned to Buenos Aires , he showed it to Gardel. Looks like “The Thrush” loved it. And he started singing it on a friend's wheel. He hesitated to sing tango in public.
He was finally encouraged. He premiered it where he sang folklore: in the theater “Empire”. It was 1917. It was a success. So much, he convinced him to follow the 2x4 road. Thank God. That same year, he recorded it for the label “Discos Nacional Odeon”, local recorder Casa Max Gluksman. He was accompanied by his partner Razzano on the guitar. Tremendous sales success.
The following year, he sang it for a long time in the theater “Esmeralda” (today the " Maip o”). Now supported by Razzano. Many people confuse this event as the premiere, perhaps because in the “Empire” he was accompanied by another guitarist.
In 1930 Gardel recorded it again. Now not with the horn system, but with the brand new microphone. It was with the guitars of Barbieri, Aguilar and Riverol. Again for the label “Discos Nacional Odeon”.
“Mi noche triste” started the journey of thousands of tangos that followed the theme of abandonment, misfortune, woman who goes. Maybe he's the culprit of the nostalgic and sad nickname won by the 2x4. Go know. The most important point is that it is a beautiful tango.
