Adios Nonino - 3 De Copas

No dulcet tones here - today's video features 3 De Copas, the Argentine instrumental rock band founded on Christmas day, 1998, in Jesus Maria, Argentina. Band members are Ariel Vilche (lead guitar), Matías Londero (bass guitar) and Jordan Toro (drums). They made the decision early to forgo vocals, an unusual decision for a rock band - even more unusual for a trio - but it has served them well. Following the usual path of playing covers and being the opening act they have progressed to being the headline performers playing full concerts of their own material across much of Latin America. Their latest CD, Metiendo Púa, which you hear as you open their website shows a surprisingly full sound for such a small group.

Their version of Adios Nonino featured here was recorded at the Cineclub Municipal Hugo del Carril in Córdoba, Argentina in March of this year. Interestingly, the only other covers in the evening were a couple of Jimi Hendrix covers - somehow that seems appropriate.
