Octavio Garabello is a argentinian painter and musician based in Berlin since 2012.
I first met Octavio in Buenos Aires during a south american trip on 2010, he was playing the bass with a band called Hipnoflautas in a venue called Inpa, a workers self-managed industry that had a room left for concerts and parties.
Being very impressed by the unplatonic psychedelism of the band, I was very happy when i met Octavio again playing a solo guitar set at Jardin Oculto, an off Art space in S.Telmo.
In this occasion I bought Cantemos Canciones (Let's Sing Songs) a 20 copies run cd-r that became an instant classic at home once back from traveling.
4 years later in Berlin I met a guy while wandering at night, as soon as I discovered he was from Buenos Aires I started to tell him how good the Hipnoflautas gig was and went on talking about that Octavio's cd-r I was forcing all my friends to listen to.
After a while the guy kindly told me: "Hey but I am that person!"
Love is a strange thing
I will follow
Son of will
This is just a dream
Mess in the dance floor
Let's go to Treptower Park
(Was it real love?)
