BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — Fans of Carlos Gardel are celebrating the tango singer 75 years after he died in a plane crash. About 100 mostly elderly fans gathered at Gardel’s tomb in Buenos Aires on Thursday, leaving flowers and lit cigarettes between the bronze fingers of a lifelike statue that stands above. Gardel’s plane caught fire in Colombia in 1935, but those who love his music said his legacy will never die. A fan, Juan Carlos Giordano, said he listens to his more than 900 Gardel records on an antique vitrola, to better summon the feelings of nostalgia the singer celebrated in his repertoire.
