Omar Merlos was born in Buenos Aires. His career on stage combines theatre, dancing and puppets between others. Tango was always part of his lifem and it was at an early eage that he started composing poems and lyrics for tango. The title of cantor (Tango singer) came later in his life when in 1980 he launched a part time career singing tango. In 2000 he took early retirement and made Tango singing his full time ocupation. Today, Omar Merlos and his orchestra visit frequently the major cities in Argentina. Since 2005 he has toured Spain and will visit South Africa in the near future. Regularly he is present in fairs, meetings, conventions and private parties too. After the recording of his first LP in late 2006 Omar is preparing his new repertoire for spring 2007.
In 2006 Omar was named by Mar del Plata´s City Council as Touristic Embassador in Spain to the effects of introducing tango and its culture.
