Argentine Tango Singer Ruben Juarez Dies

BUENOS AIRES – Argentine accordion player and tango singer Ruben Juarez died Monday at a Buenos Aires clinic from the prostate cancer he had suffered for several years, people close to the artist said. He was 62.

The musician died at the Guemes clinic, where he was in intensive care since last week because of a general deterioration in his state of health, they said.

Ruben Juarez, born on Nov. 5, 1947 in the province of Cordoba, recorded more than a dozen tango albums and made innumerable tours of Latin American and European countries.

He also shared the stage with other famous artists like the Spaniards Joan Manuel Serrat and Ana Belen, Portugal’s Carlos Do Carmo and the Argentines Charly Garcia, Fito Paez and the late Mercedes Sosa, among others.

He also took part with his inseparable bandoneon – an Argentine version of the accordion – in recording Serrat’s disc “Sombras de la China” (Shadows of China).

According to the musician’s Web site, in such European countries as Sweden, Finland, Germany, England and Switzerland, he had inherited “the musical circuit of (new tango innovator) Astor Piazzolla.” EFE
