Sui Generis

Sui Generis were an Argentine folk-rock combo that recorded three studio albums and a two-volume live set between 1972 and 1975. The band were initially a duo comprised of keyboardist/vocalist Charly García and guitarist/vocalist Nito Mestre. The pair were augmented in the studio by assorted come-and-go players.

Members: Charly García (keyboards, vocals), Nito Mestre (vocals, guitar, flute), Alberto Rodríguez (drums), Alejandro Correa (bass), Rolando Fortich (bass), Juan Carlos Bellia (guitar), Carlos Piégari (guitar, vocals), Rinaldo Rafanelli (bass, 1973-75), Juan Rodríguez (drums, 1973-75)

After retiring the Sui Generis nameplate, García and Mestre continued working together in the folk ensemble PorSuiGieco, which issued one 1976 album on Music Hall. García went on to front La Máquina de Hacer Pájaros, Serú Girán, and launch a highly successful solo career. Mestre would head the short-lived folk ensemble Los Desconocidos de Siempre and release numerous solo albums.
