Carlos Gardel
Birth: Dec. 11, 1890
Toulouse
Departement de la Haute-Garonne
Midi-Pyrénées, France
Death: Jun. 24, 1935
Medellin
Antioquia, Colombia

Tango Singer, Composer, and Actor. One of the most prominent figures in the history of tango. The unerring musicality of Gardel's baritone voice and the dramatic phrasing of his lyrics made miniature masterpieces of his hundreds of three-minute tango recordings. Together with lyricist and long-time collaborator Alfredo Le Pera, Gardel wrote several classic tangos. He died in an airplane crash at the height of his career, becoming an archetypal tragic hero mourned throughout Latin America. For many, Gardel embodies the soul of the tango style. He is commonly referred to as "Carlitos", "El Zorzal" (The Song Thrush), "The King of Tango", "El Mago" (The Magician), "El Morocho del Abasto" (The Brunet Boy from Abasto), and "El Mudo" (The Mute). (bio courtesy of: Wikipedia)
