Alberto Caleris was born in Argentine. In 1983 he stopped his career and settled down in the high Andes of Ecuador.
In Argentine he had had a good start. EMI produced two LPs with him, some songs you can still hear on the radio in Buenos Aires today. He was on stage together with Lito Nebbia, Victor Heredia, Yabor or Jorge Cumbo. Everyone still knows him in Argentine, remembering the 70s and 80s.
But Alberto decided to start a new life in Quito. And in his work you will find like a mirror what happened in his life.
