A slight insight into the background of the singer
Marciano Cantero was born on 25th August and was fond of the Beatles when he was nine. Remembering his career, one can be in awe and was at the forefront of the mythical group which is now the most exportable of Argentine music. His hits can form a long list but some of them are “The Green Wall”, “I Saw you on a Train”, “Bolivian Lament”, and “For the Rest”. The group consists of a trio, Felipe Staiti on guitar, Daniel Piccolo o drums, and Marciano Cantero on vocals; this trio was selected for the Festival de la Falda as Revelation.
And this was the push the band needed to finally decide to go to Buenos Aires to record their debut album, which would carry the group’s name. The song “I’m still singing” from the album raised a ruckus on the radio and rapidly turned into a rock “classic.” Their fame increased with the publication of their second LP, Contrarreloj, in 1986, which allowed them to perform on the radio in nearby nations. They also achieved their goal of attending the Via del Mar festival in 1988, when they took home two “Silver Torches”.
Javier Cantero, the late Cantero’s son, acknowledged that his father was unable to overcome the difficulties and thanked everyone for their prayers, support, and encouragement throughout the years.
Our thoughts go out to Marciano’s friends and family during this difficult time.
