De musica ligera - my intro to Argentina
The thing with Argentina for me was that I think I fell in love with it long time before my first visit.
In my childhood there was Maradona, then Tomek Wilmowski - a character from my favourite book series - was riding horses through Gran Chaco. Later on a cover of "Buenos Aires" by Justyna Steczkowska of a hit from the 80s moved my imagination.
And once I met my costarican friends they introduced me to Mercedes Sosa and Soda Stereo. When the song starts and I hear "Ella durmió al calor de las masas" I get goosebumps (De música ligera, El último concierto).
On the other side of the spectrum "Gracias a la vida" by Mercedes Sosa has the same effect on me.
Then I saw Gustavo Cerati live in London. And I had to go.
