Monchito Merlo

At thirteen years Monchito Merlo was already a professional acordionist who debuted on radio and shortly after on television.
At the age of fifteen, he recorded his first LP and, to his own surprise, was in high demand at festivals and received more recording offers and important contacts.
A studious, temperamental and enterprising young man, his ability and fame crossed the Argentinean borders into Brazil. The states of Rio Grande Do Sur, Santa Catarina, were getting to know Monchito Merlo.
Merlo became the voice of the Argentine coast, playing the sweet melodies that became the soul of the Chamame.
