1925, October 13 – BIRTH OF CARMEN GUZMAN

Singer, Composer, Guitarist – born in the city of Mendoza into a family of musicians, she began to study music at the age of 7…the outlines of a prodigy soon emerged and at the age of 8 she was placed on stage for her first concert in classical guitar…by the age of 14 she had graduated as a guitar teacher…in the 50s she received her first recognition as a composer for her tango “Y Ya No Estas” earning her, her first contract with a radio station

***

She married a brilliant musician Pedro Belisario Perez,  with whom she was an equal partner in his compositions…with Osvaldo Berlingieri, she recorded her critically acclaimed,  “Por Que Vas a Venire”…in 1985 she received first prize with “Siga Cantando No Mas” in a contest held to commemorate the death of Gardel; in 1993 she won another contest with her milonga “Guitarra Desolada”…she has composed for some of the legends of tango and has performed alongside the likes of Troilo, Goyeneche and Piazzolla…despite all her achievments, an unassuming and modest nature, has rendered her relatively unknown to the public at large.
