Posted on April 24, 2017 • Filed under: Culture, Ecuador, Ecuador Trivia

Without doubt the most famous singer and performer from Ecuador and known worldwide is Julio Jaramillo. However, there are some who argue that Olimpo Cárdenas may have been the better singer despite not reaching international stardom.

Olimpo Cárdenas (1919, Vinces – 1991) was an Ecuadorean singer. He toured Colombia a great deal, giving concerts in towns that had never had a performance in their short and long histories. Almost 50 years later he is remembered as the great and “famous” singer who sang boleros at a public performance in Villavicencio, in 1959. (Source: Wikipedia)
