DDPs Favorite Tandas:

Tanturi: Vocals with Enrique Campos

La abandoné y no sabía (1944)
Que nunca me falte (1943)
Oigo tu voz (1943)
Una emoción (1943)

There are two iconic vocalists associated with Ricardo Tanturi‘s orchestra: Alberto Castillo and Enrique Campos. Castillo has a more nasal, streetwise voice (called reo in tango slang), whereas Campos is more polished and lyrical.
I chose to post a tanda by Campos first, mainly because I had already translated all of these songs on my other blog.

About Derrick Del Pilar

My specialty is the history & literature of early 20th century Argentina.
