Alberto Podestá (22 Sept 1924 - 9 Dec 2015)

One of the great singers of the Golden Age of Tango has passed away.

Alberto Podestá's talents were recognised before the age of 18 by the renowned Carlos Di Sarli, when he was asked to sing for the orchestra of El Señor del Tango. During his long and successful career he also sang for the great orchestras of Miguel Caló, Pedro Laurenz and Francini-Pontier. Todotango reproduces an interesting interview with Podestá, with insights into his long career in tango.

So many of his beautiful recordings are played regularly in milongas - and for good reason!  Here are just a few of my favourites:  Nada (with Di Sarli),  Que nunca me falta (with Laurenz) and Que falta que me haces (recorded in the 60s with Caló) danced here by Geraldine Rojas and Javier Rodriguez.

He will not be forgotten.
