1935, September 2 – birth of HORACIO MOLINA

Singer, Guitarist (Virgo) – Born in Buenos Aires, his major inspiration has been Carlos Gardel …he had already earned acclaim and notieriety primarily in the Bolero and Bosa Nova genre, when in 1975 he decided to devote himself exclusively to tango. In 1976 with the advent of the coup d’etat in Argentina, his life was threatened… his frienship with political activist and film producer Pino Solanas forced him to exil himself abroad; first to Madrid and then to Paris

***

His marriage to model and actress Chunchuna Villafanè produced two daughters one of whom, Juana Molina, in her own right, is garnering great acclaim in America as a avant garde folk singer. One critic described Horacio’s talent as “elegance, musical precision…an intimate voice devoid of shrillness”
