Biagi with Jorge Ortiz

”The big success of Biag(g)i” (image below, with Rodolfo Biagi on the left). Oh, they never get his name entirely right, like most relatively difficult Italian names in tango. In fact, many less complicated, Spanish-like surnames of tango singers are in fact a a more convenient pseudonym, like Roberto Chanel (Alberto Mazzochi), Raúl Iriarte (Rafael Fiorentino) and Alberto Morán (Remo Andrea Domenico). Or how about the fantastic singer on the image below, Jorge Ortiz? His real name was Juan Edelmiro Alessio. Ah, yes. You see, perhaps it is more convenient to become a ”López” or a ”Rodríguez”, like one million others around the world.
