Olimpo León Cárdenas Moreira (July 5, 1923 - July 28, 1991) was an Ecuadorian singer.[1]


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.
