Profile of the performer Nito Mestre:
Argentine folk singer and guitarist.
Born on Buenos Aires, Argentina (August 3, 1952) Carlos Alberto Mestre showed an inclination towards folklore since young, listening to classical music, playing the flute and participating on choirs.
Thought later, he would acquire [i]Please please me[/i] of [a=Beatles, The] and he would make a radical change - Towards Rock.
In high school he would form [a=Sui Generis (4)] together with [a=Charly Garcia], Alberto Rodríguez, Carlos Lareu, Alejandro Correa (Later replaced with Hugo Alfredo Negri), Juan Bellia, Carlos Piegari. But later most of it's members deserted it would become a duo with Charly.
The first instance of the group would release 5 LPs and one single, amassing nationwide popularity thanks to Charly's Melodies and Nito's vocals.
On 1975 the group disbanded on friendly terms, with Charly entering a more instrumental pace. Nito still wanted to write folk and formed on 1976 [a=Nito Mestre Y Los Desconocidos De Siempre] ([i]Nito Mestre and always's unkowns[/i]) with [a=Maria Rosa Yorio], back then Charly's wife. Their initial release put them on the top charts of Argentine folk rock, but would lose popularity in later releases because of creative stagnation. With three Lps and one single, the band disbanded on 1980 after the desertion of two of it's members.
Nito then decided to pursue a solo carrier, and release [i]20/10[/i] on 1981, considered by many his best work.
he would proceed to release [b]En Vivo[/b] (Live) and [b]Escondiendo los ojos al sol[/b] ([i]Hiding the eyes to the sun[/i]) in the consecutive years. On 1984 he would tour with [a=Juan Carlos Baglietto], [a=Celeste Carballo] and [a=Oveja negra] ([i]Black Sheep[/i]) on Chile and release [b]Porque Cantamos[/b] ([i]Why we sing[/i]), a live album, on 1985.
He would release [i]Nito[/i] the next year. Then he settled on Chile for three years after that where he would collaborate with Eduardo Gatti on his CD [b]Entrada De Locos[/b] ([i]Entrance of madmen[/i]).
He would returns to Argentina and release [b]Tocando El Cielo[/b] ([i]Touching the sky[/i]) on 1991 and [b]Nito Mestre Canta Sui Generis[/b] ([i]Nito Mestre Sings Sui Generis[/i]) the following year. After that, he feel into alcoholism and depression, eventually recuperating by the turn of the decade, and by 1999 he released [b]Colores Puros[/b] ([i]Pure Colours[/i]), returning to popularity.
In 2000 he reunited with Charly Garcia to reform Sui Generis, which released a CD that year and a live album on 2001. They then disbanded because of Charly Garcia's chaotic living style. He would then re-release his greatest hits with two compilation albums on 2002 and 2004 ([i]Años[/i] and [i]Esperando Crecer: Antologia 1982-1986[/i]).
On 2005 he released [b]Mestre[/b], and [b]Completo: En Vivo[/b] ([i]Complete: Live[/i]) on 2007. That same year his mother passed away, something he commemorated on the EP [b]Flores En Nashville[/b] ([i]Flowers on Nashville[/i]) in 2009.
