The disc records a unique global compendium dedicated to women through 19 of them, whether real or fictional, whose names give title to each of the songs.
Album by the great canary vocal group 'Los Sabandeños', marking the fifty those published, currently with over seventy albums released. The title of 'Gardel' has to do with a way of paying homage to the tango and the best performer, both threads by Gardel himself and other great Argentine musicians as Canaro, Discépolo, Troilo, Cobian, Piazzolla or Demare.

A note also the collaboration of Argentinian bandoneon player Rodolfo Mederos in 'Yira, yira'. This production by The Sabandeños won two gold albums and one platinum for sales success. Singular musical contribution that meets the ever splendid vocal quality of 'Los Sabandeños' with tango music.
