    Carlos Gardel’s voice had a very unique and charimatic timbre and furthermore his interpretive ability to deliver the precise emotion to a song has never been equaled. The genre known as the tango song truly benefited by having him as its foremost interpreter.
    He also did very well with songs composed in many different styles making him a truly international icon. Despite the technical limitations of his historic recordings any listener willing to overlook the scratchiness of the old 78s will eventually fall under his spell!
