Enanitos Verdes

Argentinian pop/rock band los Enanitos Verdes was formed in the late '70s by singer/bassist Marciano Cantero, guitarist Felipe Staiti, and drummer Daniel Piccolo. After moving from Mendoza to Buenos Aires, the band started touring the local club circuit. In 1984, guitarist Sergio Embrioni and keyboardist Tito Dávila joined, and los Enanitos Verdes' first album was recorded and released, followed by Contra Reloj, produced by Andrés Calamaro, in 1986. Soon after issuing Carrousel, the band began touring South America, becoming one of the favorite acts at the prestigious Viña del Mar Festival. Around the same time, "La Muralla Verde" started climbing the most important Latin rock charts. In 1989, los Enanitos Verdes successfully toured Central America, and reached the U.S. while participating in the Billboard Latin Forum Showcase in 1995. After performing at some North American venues, the original trio lineup recorded 1998's Tracción Acústica and 1999's Grammy-nominated Nectar. Co-founder Marciano Cantero died on September 8, 2022 after being hospitalized for renal failure. He was 62 years old.
