Mario likes to cultivate the gardens of the sky...




Jairo, whose real name is Mario Ruben Marito Gonzalez Pierotti, is an Argentinian singer-songwriter.


Particularly known in France during the 1970s, he will remain mainly in the musical history of the end of the XXth century thanks to the enormous title "Les jardins du ciel", single which was released in 1980 and which will make its fortune, and its glory.


Other well-made titles came out during the 1980s and for that reason alone, we had to devote this article to him.


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1978 ... a pretty ballad as an appetizer and which allows the artist to show the most interesting potential, especially in the Intimist field. And that's only the beginning...



1978 ... here it has arrived in French, in a musical style so typical of the end of the 1970s. A quiet and serene rise to power ...



1978 ... the title which will hoist it in the big leagues. On a very traditional track called 'Carol of the drum' dating from 1941 and composed by Katerine Kennicott Davis, he delivers a version which holds my faith very well the road and which will undoubtedly remain as one of the best interpreted versions



1979 ... an Intimist register which he never leaves and in which he shows obvious aptitudes. But the obvious gap with the new musical trends of the moment can only inexorably isolate him and ultimately marginalize him ...



1980 ... which does not prevent him from signing here the biggest success of his career. And precisely on a track much more rhythmic than anything he had been able to offer until then. Like what, not much was enough. HU-GE !



1981 ... a sudden acceleration of the tempo which is confirmed with this new title. Despite obvious efforts to stick to the latest trends of the moment, it is clear that it is almost impossible for him to compete on equal terms with the competition ...



1982 ... a return to Intimist mode in the 70s version which unfortunately undermines all the efforts he has made in past years to try to catch up with the leading pack. It is now almost a waste of time ...



1983 ... the years pass and the gap worsens even more with the competition. An inability to change and above all to renew himself at the musical level which will inevitably lead him to his loss ...



1984 ... already much more trendy, we wonder if we are dealing with the same singer as the difference is incredible with what he has offered until then. Unfortunately, the delay with the competition is now too great. Pity...



1986 ... and yet, he had the potential to do great things during the 1980s, the proof with this title. Unfortunately, his lack of daring during the transition to the 80s was fatal ...



1987 ... a last title which sees him leave again in a style frankly too shifted compared to his time. Hunt the natural, it comes back at a gallop ...
