ERNESTO FAMÁ is born. He was one of the first to distinguish himself as a refrain singer. At the beginning, in the orchestras, the role of the singer was limited to only singing the refrain, the stanza that gets repeated throughout the song. He recorded more than 350 themes. He did it with Di Sarli, Fresedo, and the Tipica Victor among others. With Francisco Canaro he gained his fame singing almost 240 songs.
