Founded in 2004, Glamity is an agency at the service of both the artist and the entertainment industry, operating on each bank of the Rio de la Plata. It is a dual bridge: between the cities of Buenos Aires and Montevideo and industry and artists.

The Uruguayan song has long been one of his greatest inspirations in Fernando Cabrera.

He is a unique artist, icon of the culture and identity of the Río de la Plata with a career of over thirty years, awards at international festivals, a production of more than ten own albums and many others as producer and arranger .

He has made soundtracks for four films (Tahiti, 1989, half-length film; El Dirigible, 1993, feature film; I never read Onetti, documentary in partnership with Jorge Drexler – all by Pablo Dotta; For a while, 2013, feature film by Gustavo Garzón; and almost a score of plays with the most notable directors of Uruguay.

With a career he made without moving an inch of his own desires – practically from the margins of the music industry – his artistic rigor, the striking quality floor of his work and the word of mouth of musicians who admire him unconditionally, Cabrera is one of the most unique Montevidean musical phenomena of recent years.

He has won multiple awards: Graffiti Award for “Best Reissue” for the vinyl edition of “The Time Is Later” (2019); Graffiti Award for “Best Album of Popular Music and Urban Song” for his album “432” (2018); Distinguished Visitor by the City Council of Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina (2017); Illustrious Citizen of the City of Montevideo, Uruguay (2017); Graffiti Award for “Best Art Design” for his album “Intro” (2013); Graffiti Award to the Trajectory (2012); Iris Award for “Best album of the Year” for his album “Songs Own” (2011); Graffiti Award for “Best Album of the Year” / “Best Album of Popular Music and Urban Song” / “Best Design of Art” for his album “Own Songs” (2011).

The critic has said:

  • “432” is further evidence that Cabrera is in an unmissable moment, a situation that has been going on for four decades now ” (El País, Uruguay)
  • “432” easily ranks among the best of the production of who is today the most influential musician in our country ”(Semanario Brecha, Uruguay)
  • “… Cabrera’s songs are like darts that target the sensitive fibers of the spectators. The songs pass and the tears roll down the cheeks, the throats are knotted and the claw of the heart emerges ” (Rolling Stone Magazine, Uruguay)
  • “Listening to Fernando Cabrera for the first time can cause the same sense of surprise, inspiration, strangeness and musical shudder that produced the time Bob Dylan appeared with his electric guitar at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival. Cabrera is one of those artists who they generate a different vibration in the musical environment and cause a before and after listening to their work, one of the most significant of the Río de la Plata “.

Old tangos for new ears.

With a special taste for acoustic formations and classical tangos, Francis Andreu brings to the new generations composers of the twenties in his voice of thirty.

Francis owns a voice that seems made for the tango that she plays true to the arrabalero genre, a brave doll to which Raúl Castro (“Falta y Resto”) composed a tango especially. Deprecated, charismatic and with a magnetic phrasing, she has installed herself strongly in the tango scene of the Río de la Plata, but her sensitivity and permanent contact with all the music have led her to “degenerate” quite a lot, sharing scenarios with very different artists.

Recognized in her country with the Iris Prize, as an Artistic Revelation, and with the Grafitti Prize for Music as Best Tango Album twice; three albums released and the DVD ‘Los tangos que Quiero’, recorded live at the Teatro Solís in Montevideo; She was invited to the World Tango Festival of Buenos Aires and won the “First Gold Condor” Prize at the International Fair Tango Festival in San Luis, Argentina as a Revelation Artist.

She shared the stage with Diego El Cigala at the Sodre Auditorium in Montevideo. She stepped on the Colón Theater, in Buenos Aires with Horacio Ferrer and with Raúl Lavié.

She has been in the uninterrupted career for more than 15 years making multiple presentations in Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.

She has just released his third album FRANCIS CANTA JAIME ROOS running out of all the entries in the presentations made in montevidean venues. She opened the first Arena Stadium in her country with this show and closed the Montevideo Tango Festival in the Plaza Matriz of Montevideo. It was called by Jaime Roos herself to participate in his return to the stage in 2020.

Francis Andreu has been elected Ambassador of “Marca País”.

He was born in Alaska, of an Argentine mother and an American father. He had a brief step in the local Argentine rock with Civic Instruction (“Obedience Due”, 1985, Gold Record in Peru). In 1990, he went to ‘rediscover’ the North America of his childhood and lived there almost 10 years. Soon he met Hilly Krystol, owner of CBGB’s, who invited him to participate in his future label. During the ’90s, he recorded and played there as’ house band’, also in the Knitting Factory and the Mercury Lounge, among others. In 2000, Kevin returns to Buenos Aires, where he settled permanently.

“The Nada” is the group founded by Kevin Johansen in New York, where he recorded his first album also titled “The Nada” and that surprises with its eclecticism, bilingualism and subtlety of the songs. Little by little he was conquering critics and audiences, becoming a reference in the alternative circuit of Buenos Aires and, soon, also in Spain. His second album “Sur or no Sur”, published in Argentina and in the rest of the Spanish-speaking countries has the charm of permanent surprise and confirms it as someone not only ingenious in composition, but also in stylistic and linguistic miscegenation . With this album he toured Argentina, Uruguay, the United States, Mexico, Chile, Spain and the rest of Europe. “Sur or no Sur” was nominated for three Latin Grammy Awards, in fundamental categories such as “Album of the Year”, “Song of the Year” and “Best Video”.

Among all these trips, Kevin was recording “City Zen”. The music works like the Zen of the city, and the album reflects the urban spirit of the many cities where Kevin lived throughout his life. He was nominated for the American Grammy Award (NARAS) in the Best Latin Pop Album category and the Chicago Tribune referred to the album as “one of the 10 best Latin albums.”

His next studio album “Logo” had the collaboration of several guest artists: Andrea Echeverri (from Aterciopelados), Amparo Sánchez (from Amparanoia), the Spaniard Albert Plá and Paulino Moska, from Brazil – among others. The album is named by the Los Angeles Times as one of the five best albums of the year and Kevin and his “Logo” are again nominated for the Latin Grammys: “Album of Alternative Music”, “Alternative Song” (for “Last night I dreamed of you “, also a great success in Brazil in the version of Paula Toller) and” Music Video Short Version “, for the same song).

The prestigious publishing house De la Flor publishes OOPS !, (Argentine Chamber of Publications Award) book in which the lyrics of Kevin’s themes join the illustrations that the artist Liniers makes of his songs and that are taken live. During 2009, UNRWA! LIVE was presented on a tour of great impact in Latin America and Spain, culminating with the record on CD and DVD of “VIVO EN BUENOS AIRES”, record work by Kevin Johansen + The Nada + Liniers, a record on CD and DVD edited at early 2010 (Sony Music).

His next album “BI” (Sony Music), was attended by Lila Downs, Ruben Rada, Daniela Mercury, Natalia Lafourcade, Paulinho Moska, Lisandro Aristimuño, Fernando Cabrera and Orquesta El Arranque, among others.

“Got Something (Interesting Little Thing)” is the first preview of the next studio album, “Mis Américas”, released in 2016, in which Palito Ortega, Pity Álvarez, Miss Bolivia, Lito Vitale and their daughters participate as guests Miranda and Kim, among others.

“AlgoRitmos” -which is available in physical and digital format-, is his latest album and invites us to travel through different sound routes. It is another proof of the versatility that characterizes Kevin Johansen’s music, which allows him to go from a Bossa Nova song like “My Dear Brazil,” accompanied by Jorge Drexler, María Gadú, and Kassin, to the futuristic Teleportation, where he imagines the possibility of moving in an instant, from Japan to Bogotá, to visit their loves. The album was produced by Matías Cella and features La Shica and Daniel Drexler as guest artists. It is being presented with a long world tour entitled MITOURBANO.

Fun, deep, playful, intelligent, thoughtful, are some of the characteristics with which you can define your music and songs. An artist of international character, a solid band forged over the years and a concert of the most complete that can be witnessed today in Argentina are the best arguments that Kevin Johansen + The Nada offers us, this fresh air in music of the continent.

Loli Molina (Buenos Aires, 1986) is a guitarist, singer, songwriter, writer, producer and visual artist.

Winner of an MTV award and nominated repeatedly for the Gardel Awards, Loli has been part of the symphonic tributes to Gustavo Cerati and Violeta Parra among other major projects.

“I don’t think you can type art into an artist, that’s why I like to say that my music is a guitar music that is sung,” says Loli Molina.

After two albums released by Sony Music of Argentina, Loli began a professional and musical tour of very firm independence and self-management, which was the product of his third studio album “Rubí” released in August 2015, by the indie label Ropeadope Sur ( Mx-Usa). On the day of its launch, Rubí was number one in sales in iTunes Argentina and for this work was again nominated for the Gardel awards.

Her new studio album entitled “Lo Azul Sobre Mi” is the fourth album that she publishes and releases to the world in November 2019 independently. It was recorded in Mexico City and Buenos Aires; produced by the winner of a Latin Grammy, Hernan Hecht; and composed of 10 original compositions and a version of the composer Edgardo Cardozo. The instrumentation is minimalist – Spanish guitarist, string quartet with Ramiro Flores arrangement, electric guitar, voice – and participating, as stellar guests, Juan Quintero and Álvaro Ruiz in voices.

“In these compositions I wanted to return to the root of many things that I have studied and that I am, and to honor and interpret musical ideas that go through and appeal deeply to me: Latin American folklore, blues, ancient music for guitar.”

“‘ The blue thing about me ’is an album that looks at death through different crystals: death as the end of things, death as a transit to other forms and death as the beginning of life. All these songs are dedicated to the beauty of life and the beauty of the questions that have no answer. I sing and play as a way to inhabit this space in the time that touches me. ”Loli Molina has received support from Gibson and Taylor guitar brands, as well as Earthquakes Devices and Reunion Blues. It is based in Mexico three years ago, where in addition to working as a musician she is dedicated to collage as a visual discipline.

MESTISAY, is one of the most unique creative adventures of the popular music of the Canary Islands. Created in 1980 by Manuel González, he has made and produced in his more than three decades of activity one of the most prolific and intense musical careers of his Archipelago. They have fostered collaborations – live or on record – with numerous musicians and performers from the Latin and Portuguese-speaking worlds. In addition, they have performed in numerous countries and stages in Africa, America and Europe and have been present at the schedules of some of the most important music festivals in the world on the international calendar through their tours. His creative commitment has extended to numerous initiatives where they have directed and produced several productions of musical theater and musical shows that have been a milestone of collection and criticism and public acceptance in their native islands and have been a revulsion for Canarian popular music.

OLGA CERPA, her singer, very popular in his native archipelago, is considered the most relevant female voice of island-rooted music in the last two decades. It is helped by exquisite vocal conditions and a unique artistic personality.

The following albums La Rosa de los Vientos (1996), Viento de la Isla (1998) and Mestisay (2000) represent a great leap in the national and international projection of the group. In 2002 with Songs of the South, with which she toured cities of America and Spain, she experimented with a project where music and recitatives shake hands naked, accompanied by the piano of Maestro Alejandro Monroy and the voice of his Mestisay companion Manuel González, composer of most of his repertoire. In 2006 she debuts with Mestisay Dear Nestor II. Songs of the Island, which becomes a new blockbuster in the Canary Islands. Together they also publish Poeta en la Isla, a record work that gathers the show conceived by the group in tribute to the Canarian poet Pedro Lezcano. Then follow the recordings Pequeño Fado y Otras Canciones de Amor (2008) and Atlántico Radio (2011), which she presents with the single Morena Rosa, where she ventures with Mestisay in an Atlantic sound that underlines links with the African lusophony and Macaronesia Atlantic through collaborations with artists from that geographical area.

In 2014 she started a project called “Jallos”; as an advance of the same, she will record with her friend the singer and pianist Ana María Perera a live video with one of her favorite songs from the Carlos Varela repertoire, entitled Delicadeza. Also it publishes Estación Lisboa with Mestisay, a production recorded between the Portuguese capital and its native island where it proposes a fadista reading of Latin American and Canary songs in a disc that counts on the collaboration of the Portuguese singers Helder Moutinho and Ricardo Ribeiro. Their presentation tour will take them to perform for the first time in New York, within the fourth tour that he performs with her group in some cities in the United States.

She later performed with Mestisay at the Jazz Museum in New Orleans and the Ida Lang Recital Hall in New York as part of the group’s fifth tour of the United States. In 2017, Jallos edits with Mestisay, which becomes the album of the year at the Canary Islands Music Awards.

She has collaborated on more than 30 recordings with artists from various countries. Special mention deserves her usual participation in the record productions of the Portuguese composer and multi-instrumentalist Julio Pereira. She has also recorded with Joao Afonso, the Portuguese fadistas Mafalda Arnauth, Helder Moutinho and Ricardo Ribeiro, the Galicians Milladoiro, the Guinean Daughters of the Sun, the Venezuelans Serenata Guayanesa, the Peruvian Eva Ayllón, the Cuban Albita Rodríguez, the Basques Tontxu and Kepa Junquera , La Bruja Gata from Madrid, Andrés Molina, Totoyo Millares, Luis Morera, Los Sabandeños, Beselch Rodríguez, Dacio Ferrera, José Manuel Ramos, Taburiente, the Gran Canaria Philharmonic Orchestra and the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra, among others.
