Biography

During his long career the Argentinian rock musician Charly Garcia has become one of his country's best known and most successful artists. He was born into a wealthy family in Buenos Aires in 1951 and from a young age was encouraged by his parents to pursue and develop his musical talent. Having developed perfect pitch and good keyboard skills he was accepted into the Thibaud Piazzini Conservatory and at the age of 12 graduated as a music professor. During his early teens he discovered The Beatles and began to experiment with rock music, forming the band Sui Generis. During this early period a variety of musical influences can be detected in Garcia's work including folk, classical, rock and psychedelia.

He then went on to be involved in the prog rock band La Máquina de Hacer Pájaros and the legendary folk rock supergroup PorSuiGieco. Since the 1980s Garcia has concentrated on solo projects and has generated a prodigious output of material, recording almost 30 albums in his own name. After a battle with alcohol and drug abuse during the early part of the 21st century Garcia has recovered and rebuilt his career and continues to be one of Argentina's most popular performers.
