About Mariano Mores

Argentinean celebrity Mariano Mores was seduced by classical music at a very young age. After a year of taking piano classes, the artist received a scholarship to study in Salamanca, Spain. Later, while listening to Carlos Gardel, the musician was captivated by tango. After meeting Mirna and Margot Mores at PADI, a music academy, the talented pianist joined their act, called Las Hermanitas Mores, adopting their last name. At the age of 17, Mariano Mores became the pianist for popular singer Francisco Canario, playing for him for more than a decade, later forming Orquesta de Cámara del Tango and Orquesta Lírica Popular Argentina. In the movies, Mariano Mores successfully played roles in classic films such as La Doctora Quiere Tango and La Voz De Mi Ciudad. In the year 2000, the artist was voted Best Tango Composer of the Century by local authorities. ~ Drago Bonacich
