MPTango Presents: Ricardo Rezk at PractiMilonguero

Ricardo Rezk: “I was 21 and one day the phone rings in the factory and my father tells me that it was Copes calling and when I went to answer he asked me if I was willing to go to North America. I told him yes. He answered, “I wait for you at Marabú (Cabaret Marabú). We have rehearsals at 4PM.” I went and I started to rehearse and made my debut in the Marabú. At the time there was the orchestra of Pepe Basso (José Basso), with Floreal Ruiz, Jorge Durán and Chocho Florio (Roberto Florio).”

MPTango Presents: Carlos Funes at PractiMilonguero

Carlos Funes: “I can tell you, in the world of music, there was nobody as simple as Don Osvaldo (Osvaldo Pugliese). The others were more professional. Not professionals, how can I tell you, they were more artists. He was a man who loved tango and the Argentinian people.”
