Biography by Drago Bonacich

When Domingo Cura settled down in Buenos Aires at a young age, the artist started being captivated by Latin rhythms, jazz, and traditional local music. During his first years as a percussionist, the musician had the opportunity to work along with prominent local acts, such as Gato Barbieri and Mercedes Sosa. It was in the 1960s when Domingo Cura joined Ariel Ramírez, working together for several years, including 1964’s Misa Criolla performance, one of the most acclaimed pieces of Argentinean folklore. In 1970, Domingo Cura recorded Tiempo de Percusión, released by independent label Prodisa and followed by a self-titled album in 1971.
