1918, November 16 – BIRTH OF AIDA DENIS

Singer (Scorpio) – born in the neighborhood of Boedo, Buenos Aires, as a child of seven she was marveling  her parents with her escapes into singing with perfect diction mimicking singers on radio…her father was her first teacher; he began placing her into neighborhood festivals where she quickly gained a following …one day while listening to his favorite radio station Radio Belgrano, her father heard that the Puloil Soap Company was sponsoring a contest for girl singers and he decided the moment had come for a major test, to the delight of everyone, she won; she was 17 years …she was given an exclusive two-year contract with Radio Belgrano where she was accompanied by the acclaimed Jaime Vila guitar group…

It was during one of her performances that she met a young man  about whom she would say years later “I loved him from the moment I laid eyes on him”….they married  in 1941 and for eight years she quit show business to devote herself to her family..In 1950 she returned to Radio Belgrano and that led to a collaboration with the orchestra of Roberto Calo; with him she made her first recording “Lagrimas de Sangre” and the milonga “A Mis Manos”…she was sought after by night clubs and was a favorite at “La Armonia” and “El Olmo” and later at the legendary “Cano 14″…In the late 1970s she recorded a new release entitled: “Tres estrellas para el tango” to critical review…toward the end of her career she was a frequent guest at Grande Valores Del Tango on TV Chanel 9 which immortalized her in the memories of her beloved tango world…she once said, “I have never stopped being that girl of seven who each night would sit close to the radio to follow my tangos”
