1908 August 18 – birth of ERNESTO FAMA

SingerLeo…in the neighborhood of San Cristobal…inspired by Carlos Gardel he dreams of being a singer…while still a boy, his break comes when the chief of police gets him an audition in the National Theater.


His career blooms in recordings with great orchestras, radio, theater, films and in Paris he meets his idol Carlos Gardel… but by the age of 35 he had done it all and he retires from singing.
