ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

The band Gandhi was formed in 1993 in San José, Costa Rica. Their singer and guitarist were friends in high school, and after taking the time to share their ideas, dreams, and musical tastes, their four members felt the chemistry between them and saw the potential they had as a band. They released their first independent album which contained only original compositions, and Gandhi is now an established rock band based in Costa Rica with a huge fan base in and out of Costa Rica. They have released 4 albums and continue writing, performing, and taking their music to new audiences.

They named themselves 'Gandhi' to reach people in a positive way even before they listened to their music. Their songs are all in Spanish, and their lyrics talk about reality in an abstract, fantastic way. Their music is a fusion of progressive, hard rock, and tropical rhythms, but with a latin soul.


Gandhi is:

Luis Montalbert-Smith, vocals
Federico Miranda, guitar
Abel Guier, bass
Massimo Hernández, drums


ARTIST HISTORY

Gandhi has become one of the most popular rock bands in Costa Rica in its long career since 1993. Their first two albums are among the best sellers in the history of Costa Rican rock music. They were selected to be part of the album 'Tributo a Soda Stereo', along with important latin rock artists such as Aterciopelados, Moenia, and Julieta Venegas. Their first album titled 'En el jardín del corazón' (In the garden of the heart), was released independently in 1997 in a sold-out concert in the Melico Salazar Theater. This album also reached high places in national radio charts with the song 'Quisieras'. Their second album titled 'Páginas perdidas' (Lost pages) was released in 1999 and sent Gandhi to the top of Costa Rican rock scene. 'Páginas perdidas' was reviewed by the press as the best album in the history of Costa Rican rock. It also won 3 ACAM awards including 'Best album' and 'Songwriter of the year'. This album also gave Gandhi some of their highest chart positions on local radio with songs such as 'Al son del dolor', 'El invisible', 'Mátame', and 'En el ático'. 'El invisible' has been one of the most popular songs in Costa Rican music. In 2002 Gandhi wrote and recorded the song 'El otro gol' to celebrate the participation of the Costa Rican soccer team in the 2002 Soccer World Cup in Korea/Japan. In 2002 Gandhi released the double album BIOS to celebrate the band's 10th anniversary.

A.

amazing debut CD!
En el Jardin del Corazon marked just the beginning of a career full of great music for Gandhi.

All 11 songs in this CD are great in their own way and explore different blends of latin rhythms and elements to create what I would call the best CD from a Costa Rican rock band.

Del Corazon / Quisieras / Matame are my favorite songs in it. If you liked BIOS, you must buy this CD and hear for yourself how it all started.
