Biography

Biography

Pablo Miró is a songwriter, composer, singer, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist grounded in the tradition of Argentine folk music, as well as a composer of children’s songs and a tango musician. Pablo is regarded as one of the great talents of the new Argentine music generation, one of his country’s top newcomers, who has succeeded in updating traditional music using modern music and sound techniques.

Pablo is rooted in two cultures, that of South America and of Germany and sings in both Spanish and German. That is reflected not only in his fluency in both languages but also in his musical diversity and originality, the result of his constant quest in both musical worlds. Pablo’s creativity draws on the enormous musical richness of southern South America and the tremendous energy of the many different rhythms (chacarera, chamamé, bossa nova, candombe, bahuala), as well as the composition techniques of classical music, the finely woven harmony of impressionism, jazz or bossa nova. All of these elements can be heard in his music, and yet he creates something new and unique: Pablo sounds like Pablo. This is not a musical sound created by chance but, rather, the result of a long search for his own sound, his own voice and his own words.

Pablo Miró focuses on the essential. His aim is to convey - as intensively, passionately and expressively as possible - his infectious zest for life, his hope for a world marked by solidarity, his anger and indignation about social inequalities and his poetic and philosophical perception of everyday life, of love and of everything that is magical. This, and only this, gives his music and concerts meaning.

Pablo sees his music, lyrics and instrumental pieces as a powerful tool to show us and himself the way to a more beautiful, happier and fairer life where solidarity plays a greater role, a life which is more intensive and truer, freer, more sensual and even wilder.

His concerts are unique, refreshing, provocative and intimate, rich in diversity and instrumental virtuosity, marked by his powerful and expressive voice.
