I can, effortlessly, cite 100 Argentine bands better than Tequila. Even bands playing for free on pubs.

Just ask a dozen of Argentines about the best bands. Tequila is not considered.
Even Calamaro is not top.

Believe me, Ariel Roth is nobody.

He was lucky to play with Calamaro, but that's it.
Calamaro could have replaced him with 1000 other random dudes, and it would not make a difference.

Ariel Roth plays in Spain, because he doesn't have a chance in Argentina.

Do not take Spanish or Mexican sources as a guide to Argentine music (worse, to Argentine rock). It's a non starter.

It was the other way around. Rot gave Calamaro the opportunity to join Los Rodríguez in 1990, when the other three members were already together.

Nope. It is because he was already living in Madrid in 1976, when he was only 16 years old. Also, he has collaborated with some important musicians such as bands Extremoduro and Pereza.

-----------------------------

Apart from that, this is another one Argentine musician that I like: Fito Páez.

^That's actually not an Argentine song, but a cover of a Spanish song (Spanish as from the country Spain, not just on Spanish language). I believe that the author is Joaquin Sabina.

Paez's songs that I most like are probably those:

Brillante sobre el mic


Sasha, Sissí y el círculo de baba


El amor después del amor


Polaroid de locura ordinaria

Both. Sabina & Páez. From joint album Enemigos íntimos (1998). Also published in Antología (Páez's compilation album).

Rest in Peace. I listened to several of his songs and I really liked. Not everyone can play together with BB King:




Thanks to YouTube, I am "discovering" a lot of music from the 70's lately. I liked El Reloj:

Let's switch to something more bluesy:

Viejas Locas is a band with Rollings Stones influence, whose singer is probably the worst ever Argentine singer.

Perra


Me gustas mucho


I like the parts on which the singer shut up:

Qué vas a hacer tan sola hoy


Me gustas así

Today a turn to latin with some rock fusion:

Bersuit Vergarabat

El viejo de arriba


Se viene el estallido


Yo tomo


La bolsa

Ok. Calm down.

You are having too much party. You need a time to just let it go; watch motes of dust slowly wandering on the rays of sun.

Abandon yourself into Oblivion:

Piazzolla
Oblivion


I lied. It's obsessive:

Cité tango


The mind is a jail. Dream with liberty... If you can:

Libertango



Verano porteño


Same song. Bonus track: ASTOR PIAZZOLLA "VERANO PORTEÑO" [HQ] - YouTube
