Carlos Alberto "Charly" García Moreno was born on October 23, 1951. Charly began to show musical talent at an early age. At three, he received a toy piano as a gift, and soon he surprised his mother with his ability to compose and play coherent melodies. In high school he met Carlos Alberto "Nito" Mestre and the two fused their bands to give birth to Sui Generis. In 1972, Sui Generis released its first LP, Vida, which quickly became popular among Argentinian teenagers. After the band disbanded, he formed Serú Girán, what was dubbed "The Argentinian Beatles", where Charly began to receive recognition as a great artist. Charly García debuted as a soloist with a double LP, Pubis Angelical ("Angelical Pubis", in 1982. In 2000, Charly and Nito Mestre decided to bring Sui Generis back to life.
