Some of you saw the image of Carmencita Calderon with Daniel Trenner and asked me who she is. Some of you googled.
Carmencita Calderon (1905 - 2005) was partner of “El Cachafaz” ( Ovidio José Bianquet, nickname Benito, 1885 - 1942).
El Cachafaz and Carmencita have been captured in very few films, but they star briefly in one scene in the 1933 film “Tango!”
This film will be showcased in Institute Cervantes, Delhi on 3rd August.

“Tango!”, was Argentina’s first motion picture with sound. It has an all-star cast of tango singers and orchestras!
Carmencita Calderon, lived to be 100! In fact, on her 100th birthday in 2005 there was a big party for her at the milonga “La Baldoza” in Buenos Aires.
At 100 years old, Carmencita had not lost her rhythm, nor her footwork!
