She was the first singer, direct heiress of the primitive payadores. His is a unique case in the history of the woman in the tango. No one expressed as she, sang with the same cadence and the same I left with the speaker, was the female prototype -irrepetible- of the suburban.
He played naturally, as he did, and played the guitar by tone, as Juan de Dios Filiberto, his neighbor in the neighborhood of La Boca taught.
He spoke by interlacing vulgar words, with a canyengue rhythm, as he would have heard it from the men of his house, port workers, and carreros. She did it with a lisp and her voice was not powerful but it generated an intimate atmosphere as if singing for herself. This style accompanied her until her death despite the fact that she had already overcome poverty and had a very well-off economic position.
Journalist Jorge Göttling called it "The Buenos Aires Edith Piaff".
It appeared at the precise moment and was different at all.
The success came quickly, was beloved daughter of the company Victor to which he was faithful throughout his career. It began to record in 1923, the first record was a style titled "Always Creole". His first tango was "La tipa", by guitarist Enrique Maciel and lyrics by Enrique Maroni.
It was her and of course the label Victor, who inaugurated in Argentina the era of electrical recordings. The event happened on March 1, 1926, that day made four electric recordings, but by number of matrix the first and therefore emblematic in the record history of our country was "The muse mistonga", by Antonio Polito and Celedonio Flores.
It continued until 10 of February of 1931, when also registered four subjects. He practically then ended his career, he was 35 years old, although he continued to appear on radio, sporadically. He did not like performing in public.
During that very successful period (1923-1931) he managed to have much predicament in the decisions of the record label, to such an extent that his management made the great Agustín Magaldi, then an unknown singer, record in the company.
For many years the poet Celedonio Flores wrote only for her, creating 24 subjects, among which are "Boy" and "Beba" (with music by Edgardo Donato), "Audacia" (Hugo La Rocca), "Carta brava" With music by herself), "The muse mistonga" (Antonio Polito) and "Contundencia" (Mario Micchelini).
He returned to the album in March 1952 and made four songs and his farewell occurred on September 14, 1984 (32 days before his death), urged by his friend and personal doctor Dr. Luis Alposta, accompanied by guitarist Aníbal Arias and His set, recording "Campaneando mi pasado", with lyrics of Alposta and his music.
In 1970 he traveled to Osaka, Japan, for an invitation from the members of a tango rock that bears his name.
Almost always accompanied by guitarists, but at the beginning she also sang accompanied by the orchestras of Carlos Vicente Geroni Flores, Antonio Scatasso, Eduardo Pereyra, Manuel Buzón and others, all belonging to the label Victor.
Rosita Quiroga is the most genuine representative of the tango suburban, today a legend of the most rancid Buenos Aires, for many the greatest, and is revered by all who love this great paradigm called tango.
