National Tango Day in Argentina

News. - 0 Comments - Send Tangocity - Bookmark and Share

We looked for what the Ministerio Nacional de Educación says about this emblematic day for Argentines.

Ben Molar was behind the creation of the “National Tango Day” , which is celebrated worldwide every December 11th, commemorating the birth dates of the creators of two tango aspects, "The voice " (Carlos Gardel,  el Zorzal Criollo (the Creole thrush) , idol and leading tango figure) and "Music " ( Julio De Caro , great conductor and genre reformist).

This date was born in a special way. It was a night in 1965. Ben Molar was standing in the tango corner, corner which, according to his words, "is what my friends Francisco Pacránico and Celedonio Flores made it to have that name ... Corrientes y Esmeralda”. He was on his way to Julio De Caro´s house to celebrate his birthday when he came up with the great idea: he associated De Caro´s birth date with Carlos Gardel´s. He realized that, besides being the two major branches they were the two major national artists.

He then presented the proposal to the Secretary of Culture of the Municipality of Buenos Aires City, Ricardo T. Freixá , who asked for the approval to arts organizations. So, Ben Molar got the approval from Sadaic , Argentores , Sade , Casa del Teatro, Sindicato Argentino de Músicos, Unión Argentina de Artistas de Variedades, Academia Porteña del Lunfardo, Radio Rivadavia, Fundación Banco Mercantil, La Gardeliana, Asociación Argentina de Actores and Asociación Amigos de la Calle Corrientes.

Eleven years later, after much walking and see how his requests were in official drawers, he cordially threatened the Secretary of Culture of the Municipality of Buenos Aires , Ricardo Freixa , with a great radio, television and graphic mobilization announcing the organization of a monster festival at the Luna Park in support of the 'Tango Day' . So, along with a delegation of the Asociación Amigos de la Calle Corrientes, he asked Tito Lectoure for the Luna Park on December 11.

Two hours after the ultimatum a miracle happened: the promulgation of the longed decree for so many years took place. Thus, on November 29, 1977 Ben Molar received the news that Decree No. 5830/77 had been signed of the Municipality of Buenos Aires City.

On December 11, the festival was held with the presence of cheering spectators who celebrated the announcement of that deserved 'Tango Day' and cheered their higher idols. The greatest musicians, bands, singers , entertainers , broadcasters, journalists and personalities associated with tango were there. That night, Julio De Caro got very excited on the stage the applause of about 15 thousand people singing his birthday. swiss replica watches, louis vuitton outlet

But for Ben Molar this was not enough: he was proposed to take things at a national level . On December,23  that year , at the request of the Secretary of Culture of the Nation, Doctor Raúl Alberto Casa , he organized a tango farewell that year 1977 at Teatro Nacional Cervantes. But in return, Ben Molar asked for the approval of the decree nationwide. At the Cervantes there were  then great performers , orchestras , singers and entertainers and also the Decree No. 3781/77 of 19 December 1977 was read , in which was established the National Tango Day' for all December ,11.
