Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ra l Alberto Antonio Gieco, better known as Le n Gieco (born on November 20, 1951 on a farm near Ca ada Rosqu n in northern Santa Fe Province, Argentina) is a pop-folk music composer and interpreter. He is known for mixing popular folkloric genres with Argentine rock, and for lyrics with social and political connotations. This has led to him being called "the Argentine Bob Dylan." Gieco started working at the age of 8. With his own money he bought a guitar, and soon started playing at school at patriotic holiday commemorations, and with Los Nocheros, a folkloric music group. He also played with a rock band called Los Mocosos, that soon gained some popularity within the neighbouring towns. They played songs of The Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Spencer Davis Group, when they won a competition to play on Rosario TV Channel 5 in 1965.show more
