1. März 1970 (48 Jahre alt)
Manuel García (Arica, March 1, 1970) is a folk-pop Chilean singer-songwriter and guitarist. He has won several awards and has twice received the Chilean National Music Prize, awarded by the Chilean Government (in 2008 and 2012).
Since 2003, García has worked on several solo projects, one of the first of which was a documentary about the life of Argentinian musician Atahualpa Yupanqui (2003). The same year he was invited to open the festival Mercat de Música Viva de Vic in Barcelona, Spain.
In 2005, he released his first album, Pánico (Panic) in collaboration with two members of Mecánica Popular, Christian Bravo y Diego Álvarez. The album received good reviews in the national Chilean media.
García’s second solo album, Témpera, was released in 2008 with a sound closer to trova, and rock, with references to Violeta Parra and Atahualpa Yupanqui. His raw guitar sound recalls fellow Chilean musician Chinoy, with whom he has shared a stage on several occasions.
His third album was called S/T (2010). Its electric sound (including guitar solos) reveals a variety of influences, though it is considered a simpler album, free of the complex arrangements seen in the previous two.
His final record to date, Acuario, again surprised fans with electronic sounds that sometimes recall Gepe or Javiera Mena. Acuario has been called a well-accomplished twist on García’s signature style, without losing the heart that comes through in his lyrics.
