If we’re talking about national rock, we’re talking about Fito. There’s no need to clarify his last name. Fito Páez was one of the great promoters ofArgentine rock, with Charly, Spinetta, Baglieto. Member of the trova rosarina that came to break with the ice block of the military dictatorship, in his more than 30 years of career left us some of the most memorable songs of our rock.

Born Rodolfo Páez in 1963, Fito began his career with Juan Carlos Baglietto , who included him as keyboardist in his band. That’s how he met Charly Garciain the early ’80s. Charly recruited him for the national tour of Modern Clicks, along with GIT and Fabiana Cantilo, where he played keyboards instead of Andrés Calamaro, who joined Grandparents of Nothing.

After that artistic push, his first solo albumarrived: Del 63 (1984). A couple of years later, he crossed another big one: Luis Alberto Spinetta. Together they recorded La la la (1986) and made a tour that took them to Santiago de Chile.

After this first countercultural stage, Fito Páez achieved international projection in the early nineties, when he published the albums El amor after del amor (1992) and Circus beat (1994) . Both became major commercial successes: the first of them sold more than a million copies.

23 studio albums, 1 maxi single, 4 live albums, 3 DVDs, 12 compilation albums and numerous collaborations with leading international artists is what has been created —so far — Fito Páez. And it always goes for more.
