Eduardo Oscar Rovira was born on April 30, 1925 in Lanús (Prov. Buenos Aires). At the age of 9 years he started as a musician playing in the Café Germinal at the Calle Corrientes with the orchestra of Francisco Alessio and two years later he became member of Vicente Fiorentino's band.

In spite of his age, he could compete musically with other musicians of the time and during the 40ties he performed with orchestras like Florindo Sassone, Antonio Rodio, Orlando Goñi, Miguel Caló, Osmar Maderna and Juan Esteban Martínez Pirincho (Montevideo). He not only accompanied many singers, but worked also as an arranger, basically within the context of an Orquesta Típica.

With his own orchestra he presented traditional tangos at Radio Splendid and on international tours. In the 50ties he worked with José Basso, Juan E. Martínez. Alfredo Gobbi and Osvaldo Manzi and many others. He belongs since this time to the group of avantgarde and experimental tango together with Astor Piazzolla, Horacio Salgán, Atilio Stampone and people coming from Osvaldo Pugliese.

Eduardo Oscar Rovira wurde am 30. Apr 1925 in Lanús, Provinz Buenos Aires geboren.
