  2. By releasing the song ‘Tantas cosas’, the acoustic duo
    ‘Gabriel & Marcelo’ planned closing their contribution
    to the folk genre. Sympathetically with most of male
    duos of that period, songwriter Gabriel Ogando desired
    as well a new texture for his compositions, a departure
    from the simplicity of folk closed harmonic structures
    into the limitless of the classical orchestra melodic palette.
    Named after a bird supposedly from the Argentinean
    south, ‘Quistral’ meant to be ‘Gabriel & Marcelo’ next
    evolutionary musical stage.

    In 1974, Gabriel Ogando crystallized this new project, by
    meeting keyboardist Guillermo Medin who at that time
    was playing with Tito Losavio in ‘Burbujas’, a Tropical/
    Dance group under the leadership of percussionist guru
    Guido ’Chiche’ Abregu. ‘Quistral’ rehearsals started shortly
    afterwards in Guillermo Medin’s studio in Lomas de Zamora,
    South Buenos Aires.

    All songs were re-arranged, re-harmonized and orchestra-
    ted accordingly to Gabriel Ogando`s plan and in 1975 trio
    ‘Quistral’ presented this new shaped-up material in IFT
    Theatre, in the off ‘Once’ neighborhood. This unique un-
    plugged concert featured Gabriel Ogando/Marcelo Braga in
    acoustic guitars/vocals and Guillermo Medin in acoustic
    piano and represents the solely ‘Quistral’ formation ever
    known to the public.

    Due to some kind of disagreement between the two vocalist,
    (not into commenting about soap-opera subjects) the trio
    ‘Quistral’ splitted-up. Desillusionized Gabriel Ogando just
    recovered from it years afterwards and joined Marilina Ross,
    Marcelo Braga opted instead for a career in music teaching
    and Guillermo Medin ended up in the house of Alejandro De
    Michele of ‘Pastoral’ in Liniers, West Buenos Aires, studying
    Gustavo Beytelmann’s orchestral score for ‘Humanos’.
    Alejandro De Michele foreseeing director Beytelmann was
    leaving the country in 1976, he convoked keyboardist Guillermo
    Medin for implementing same textures for live shows scenarios.

  3. Your welcome 'peyote'. I would like to point
    out a mistake in this entry where says "tema
    'Tantas cosas' del dúo Quistral (ex Gabriel
    y Marcelo)". It's true that 'Gabriel y Marcelo'
    was a duo but 'Quistral' was a trio.
