Andr s Calamaro, born in 1961, in the port Santa Maria of the Buenos Ayres. Andr s was introduced in the world of music when he learnt to play bandoneon with only 8 years and, nine years later, already played keyboards in a group of candombe-rock called "Roots", which made its debut album. During his youth and having already had experience as a keyboardist, studied for a short time his career in law to finally devote himself to music. He tried his luck with the "Blues Colorado Band sausage" that formed with his friend Augusto "Gringui" Herrera following after with an Association following the line of The Platters, tilted slightly by the rock, to thus define itself again next Gringui in what would be his "Elmer's Band" project that Eduardo Cano (rear bassist of the Twist) is added. It was called by H ctor Zeta Bosio to belong to a local band called The Morgan which later became "Project Erekto" when I join them Gustavo Cerati and that eventually would be transformed after time in what is known as Soda Stereo, already without the presence of Calamaro, in the beginning of the Decade of the 1980s. Shortly after Miguel Angel Peralta, known as Miguel Abuelo, selected it and invited to be part of his band, in character of keyboardist. Thus was born a new version of the legendary Abuelos de la Nada. As an active member of the band of Miguel Abuelo, Andr s belonged to the leagues (band stand by Charly Garcia) as also to the "Ray Milland Band", group formed by Daniel Melingo and Pipo Cipolatti l when it was recorded the first album of Los Twist, "La said in movement" that would participate Andr s as a guest keyboardist. After the recognition and the achieved success with the band, after having created a series of stickers and unforgettable hits like "no gamulan", "Thousand hours", "So the heat" and "Argentine customs", Andr s became solo artist in music. This is how in 1984, came the departure of its first work solo, called "Calamaro Hotel", which was produced by Charly Garcia and accepted by a select audience, but reaching a satisfactory result. Later in 1985 he recorded what would be the last album with Los Abuelos, a material which marked the end of his career with the band live. Their second album was called "Cruel life", which synthesized the sounds that kept flitting into the few: new wave, touches of dark, certain claustrophobic pop. The album was a moderate impact, but less than the success he had known when he was part of the Abuelos de la Nada. He then began his work as a producer for bands such as Los Fabulosos Cadillacs and Los Enanitos Verdes, during this short, participated as bassist of Luis Alberto Spinetta, and gift some of his songs to artists of the stature of Monica Posse Nito Mestre and Maria Rosa Yorio, who recorded them in his records. Driving his own ("Welcome to the hotel") radio program, he met Ariel Rot and complied with l a music society to record two solo albums and out to the roads of Argentina. Along with great musicians and in close collaboration with some personalities went on sale, in 1988 and 1989 respectively, the discs for"look" and "Nobody goes live here" with which Andr s showed his independence and musical maturity. Despite this, awaited success not yet reached the hard work of Andres.
