Oscar Aleman

Oscar Marcelo Alemán, was an Argentine jazz guitarist. Oscar Marcelo Alemán, talented singer, dancer, entertainer, and guitarist, was born in Chaco Province in Northern Argentina on February 20, 1909. At the age of six, he was dancing and singing with his family's folk ensemble, the Moreria Sextet playing the cavaquinho, a Brazilian ukelele[1] before taking up the guitar. By the age of ten, after his mother had died and father had committed suicide, he found himself an orphan working sporadically as a dancer and musician on the streets of Santos. Alemán played two guitars - mostly the d-hole Selmer Macafferi (also played by Django Reinhardt), and a National Style 1 tri-cone resonator guitar.[2] In 1924 Alemán met and began working with Brazilian guitarist Gaston Bueno Lobo

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
