RhoDeo 1724 Roots

Hello, i'm afraid i forgot to post the already prepared Clockwork 3 post last night, two things Twin Peaks and i guess too much polm got me too distracted. Even if Twin Peaks was too slow at times, then again Dark Matter is back with plenty of crazy stuff, and to give another insight in my TV watching..Silicon Valley already season 4 , geeks are so adorable in the cut throat world oh hi-tek, funny stuff.

Today's artist is one of his home country's most enduring national heroes. Though he is most treasured in Argentina, where his outspoken social consciousness and storied past as a fearless protest singer endeared him deeply to those who share his heritage, his appeal extends beyond his homeland: he performs to international audiences regularly and is often described in shorthand as "the Bob Dylan of Argentina."

Leon Gieco was born on November 20, 1951 in Santa Fe Province, Argentina. At 6 years old, Gieco traveled with his family from the field to the village center due to economic problems. At age 8, Gieco bought his first guitar on credit, and soon began playing music at local events with his father's band. Throughout his childhood, Gieco played with local bands such as a folkloric group called Los Nocheros (The Night Watchers) and Los Moscos (The Flies), a rock band that gained some popularity within Argentina. In 1965, Gieco traveled to Bolivia as an exchange student. He studied music and played guitar at local festivities.

When Gieco turned 18, he went to Buenos Aires to become a full-time musician. There, he took guitar lessons from Gustavo Santaolalla, who introduced him to important people in the Buenos Aires musical community, such as Raúl Porchetto, Charly García, Nito Mestre, and María Rosa Yorio, members of the Argentine supergroup, Porsuigieco. Gieco was given the opportunity to perform in the Buenos Aires Rock Festival in 1971, 1972, and 1973. In 1973, he recorded his first album, "Leon Gieco" ( it was recorded independently with Santaolalla). "En el País de la Libertad" ("In the Country of Freedom"), a hit from his album, demonstrated Gieco's concern for change in Argentina, his concern for social justice.

In 1976 Gieco released El Fantasma de Canterville ("The Ghost of Canterville"). The record suffered a great deal of censorship from the military government forcing him to change the lyrics of 6 songs and remove 3 others altogether. Nevertheless, the record was a success, and he had concerts not only around Argentina, but also in other countries of South America. Two years later he released IV LP, with one of his most famous songs: "Sólo le pido a Dios" ("I only ask of God"). Due to the political situation in Argentina, Gieco moved to Los Angeles, California in 1978 for one year.

On December 20, 1979, the Argentine Minister of Education announced the closing of the National University of Lujan in Buenos Aires. Gieco participated in a protest against the closing by singing "La Cultura es la Sonrisa". His lyrics say, "(Culture) only cries in a country where people can't choose it/it only cries its sadness if a minister closes a school..."

In 1981 Gieco started a 3-year, 110,000-kilometre-long series of independent concerts all over Argentina, playing for a total of 420,000 people. He gathered material from the different places he visited during the tour, and recorded the first volume of De Ushuaia a La Quiaca ("From Ushuaia to La Quiaca" in Buenos Aires with various autochthonous musicians in 1985. The following De Ushuaia a La Quiaca 2 and De Ushuaia a La Quiaca 3 were recorded in a mobile studio in different locations of the country.

In 1985, Gieco went to Moscow for the 12th "World Youth and Students' Festival" alongside Juan Carlos Baglietto and Litto Nebbia, representing Argentina. In 1986 and 1987, he held concerts in Germany with his friend Mercedes Sosa, including that of Berlin's Political Song Festival.

Gieco returned to Argentina and performed free concerts, one for 40,000 spectators at the National Flag Memorial in Rosario, and the other for 35,000 people in Buenos Aires. At Boca Juniors' Stadium he had a concert with Pablo Milanés and Chico Buarque, and guest musicians Mercedes Sosa, Fito Páez, Nito Mestre, Juan Carlos Baglietto and Sixto Palavecino. At the end of the year he went on a world tour that included countries such as Mexico, Peru, Brasil, Sweden, Germany and Denmark.

In 1988, Gieco performed in Germany and Austria. Back in Argentina he participated in the final concert of the Amnesty International Human Rights Now! Tour at River Plate Stadium, with Charly García, Peter Gabriel, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, and others.

After eight years of touring, Semillas del corazón ("Seeds of the heart") marked his return to the studio in 1989. That same year he performed at the Teatro Ópera in Buenos Aires with United States folk legend Pete Seeger. The following year, Seeger asked him to join a tour that took him to Washington, D.C., Boston and New York City. There he played with David Byrne, whom he had met in Buenos Aires shortly before.

In 1992, he played with Milton Nascimento, Mercedes Sosa, Os Paralamas do Sucesso, Gilberto Gil and Rubén Rada at the inauguration of the Latin American Parliament in São Paulo. In 1997 he participated in the memorial concert for the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo, with bands such as Divididos, La Renga, Los Piojos, and Attaque 77.

Gieco began his most recent national tour for social justice, Mundo Alas, in 2007. Argentine musicians, dancers, singers, and painters, all with disabilities, performed alongside Gieco, expressing their unique talents and communicating with audiences. He gave these artists the opportunity to live out their dreams as he does. Gieco created a documentary from the road tour which was produced in March, 2009. The film features rock music, folk music, and tango, along with Gieco's original hits.

During his stop in Buenos Aires on his 2013 Wrecking Ball World Tour, Bruce Springsteen filmed a video for a solo acoustic performance of "Sólo le Pido a Dios".

Banda De Caballos Cansados(Tired Horses Band) is the second studio album of singer Argentine Leon Gieco . It was launched in 1974 by the label Music Hall . 1 For this second album, Leon had his own band -the "tired horses" Rodolfo Gorosito , Rubén Batán and Vicente Buzzo - a lyrical own line within his admiration for Dylan ( "One day Baltazar" or a Bob the pampa calling for land reform) and resonance behavior that would bring countless headaches to record their third album the Canterville Ghost . Gieco had a guitarist who would accompany him for a while, Rodolfo Gorosito . It was the first guitarist who struck me by his playing, by the sound of his guitar on "If you see my father , " for his speedy solos but with feeling. Later this guitarist was part of the band Nito Mestre and the Strangers of Always .

This second album was not as homogeneous as his debutalbum. Leon it showed his internal conflict, trying to assimilate his career that had begun the previous year. In turn, it was the debut album by Alejandro Lerner who participates as guest pianist on "Tell me you're crying," "A Day Baltazar" and "Ramos de Manzanilla".

The Canterville Ghost is the third studio album by singersongwriter Argentine Leon Gieco . It was released in 1976 by the label Music Hall. The title track toalbum was composed by Charly García and originally recorded by the band PorSuiGieco for the self - titled album in 1976. Due to the prevailing censorship during the last civil-military dictatorship Argentina (1976-1983) the song "Phantom of Canterville ".was deemed unsuitable...

Shortly after the release of Porsuigieco Gieco decided to challenge censorship and include the subject matter in this album the same year '76, along with other classic songs like "The farmers of dragons , " which was composed after the murder of Víctor Jara in Chile Stadium in 1973 (location to be baptized thirty-one years later as Estadio Víctor Jara ).
Here Gieco is accompanied by Oscar Moro on drums, Alfredo Toth on bass, Charly García on keyboards, Nito Mestre and María Rosa Yorio on vocals.

This 7 Anos album of León Gieco is a very good example of what he is able to do: latin rock and folklorical music, the whole thing with the best argentin touch. This is one of the best works of Leon Gieco. He was able to blend argentine rock with folcklore and deep writings. It's one of those few albums in which every song goes to your heart.

A must have album if you like Leon's work. The author/composer of "Solo le pido a Dios", "Los salieris de Charlie" performs at his best in this classic oldie. I loved the way in which he pictures and describes places, thoughts, etc., in his lyrics, plus his ability to perform with such a mastery so many instruments. "Pensar en Nada", and "Aqui, Alla Hoy O Manana" are remarkable, and the guitars on "Veni que te Digo Algo" are amazing.
