Charly García

Charly García (born Oct. 23, 1951) is an Argentinian multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and songwriter who has been active since the early 1970s. He launched his career as half of the folk-rock duo Sui Generis, which issued three albums between 1972 and 1974. During the mid-’70s, he split time between the symphonic-rock quintet La Máquina de Hacer Pájaros and the folk-rock collective PorSuiGieco.

Teaming with the equally ubiquitous David Lebón, García fronted art-rockers Serú Girán on four albums between 1978 and 1981. He finally struck out on his own in 1982 with the release of Yendo de la Cama al Living, his first of twelve 20th century solo albums. The 1980s witnessed the apex of his artistic maturation on albums like Piano Bar (1984) and Parte de la Religión (1987).
