Tango Quizzz n°11

TANGO QUIZZZ, Which singer’s first performances with Di Sarli were in short trousers?
The answer was ROBERTO RUFINO !
Roberto Rufino was under the legal age to sing in the Buenos Aires cabarets so Di Sarli disguised him by making him wear a long overcoat and stand behind the piano. Pressure from the cabaret owners made Di Sarli secure a special authorisation from a Judge to allow the boy Rufino to sing in nightclubs !
