RICARDO TANTURI 1905 - 1973 : Leader and Composer

Tanturi (El Caballero del Tango) was born in Buenos Aires to Italian parents. He learned violin before switching to piano and also graduated in Medicine (organising student bands at university). In 1933 he formed the sextet “Los Indios”, graduating to larger renowned orchestras and his Orquesta Tipica. Some of his recordings have become classics, mostly with singers Alberto Castillo and Enrique Campos.

Tanturi’s musical style is usually calm while keeping a strong rhythmical basis, with regular alternation between melodic and rhythmical phrases, and the piano carrying the ‘Compas’ with a regular chord on the beat. He makes extensive use of syncopation - accents on first beat, then 2 off-beat, and last one on the beat.
