Osvaldo Ramos

On the last day of CITA tango festival, we had a Grand milonga with a live band.

Osvaldo Ramos sang live. He was a singer to replace Jorge Valdez in the orchestra led by Juan D' Arienzo. 
In August 1965 he cut “Sentimiento gaucho” and, in 1967, appeared with the orchestra in the movie “Una ventana al éxito” singing “El tren de las ocho”. They toured Uruguay, the interior of the country and, in 1970 they appeared in “Michelangelo” and at the “Chantecler”. With “El Rey del Compás” he recorded around 70 numbers.
In 1971 D'Arienzo with his three singers: Armando Laborde, Alberto Echagüe and Osvaldo Ramos appeared at the Teatro Odeón, in a tango revue, sharing the billboard with Tito Lusiardo, Roberto Goyeneche and Alba Solís.
