Carlos Alberto Solari (born 16 January 1949, Paraná, Entre Ríos) known as Indio Solari is an Argentine singer and musician. Solari was the leader of Patricio Rey y sus Redonditos de Ricota between 1976 and 2001,[1] and together with "Semilla" Bucciarelli and Skay Beilinson have been the only constant members of the group.

Career[edit]

In the 70's, Solari met his friend Guillermo Beilinson (Skay older brother) in a small fabric printing workshop in Valeria del Mar, called "El Mercurio". By then, Solari was already listed in his city as an enigmatic character by his harsh discourse[2] and unconventional behavior.

In 1976, Solari started a project with Beilinson brothers and various musicians, which would the beginning of Patricio Rey y sus Redonditos de Ricota, and he remained as singer until the band eventually split in 2001.

After the separation of Los Redondos, Solari started his first solo project in 2004: El Tesoro de los Inocentes (Bingo Fuel), together with his band Los Fundamentalistas del Aire Acondicionado, which was later presented in Argentina and Uruguay. In December 2007, The Fundamentalistas second album was released: Porco Rex, which was much less complex and very poetic. In the prologue he says: “Loneliness is the playing yard of Porco Rex”.[3]

In 2010, Solari and his band released El Perfume de la Tempestad, edited on CD and Vinyl.

In late 2013, Solari and Los Fundamentalistas released their fourth studio album: Pajaritos, bravos muchachitos, which includes a song recorded with his old bandmates Semilla Buccarelli, Walter Sidotti and Sergio Dawi.
