Latin singer/songwriter, Piero de Benedictis was born in Italy in April 1944, making his debut in the mid-'60s while performing Italian songs in Argentina. In 1969, after winning a local festival with a Spanish-language tune titled "Como Somos," Piero recorded his first album. Due to the local political contingency, the artist went into exile in 1976, living in Panama, Italy, and Spain. A show called La Gran Vuelta de Piero (The Great Piero's Return) was set up to celebrate his comeback in 1981. That performance was recorded and released as a double album titled Calor Humano.
