Real Name:
Digno García
Profile:
Songwriter and virtuoso player of the Paraguayan-harp, born in Morascué, Luque, Paraguay on September 22, 1919.

Following lengthy tours with the Ayala Aquino ensemble and other groups, 1947 saw Digno join “Los Guaireños”, performing alongside Luis Alberto Del Parana, Agustín Barboza and Humberto Barua in Mexico, Cuba and throughout Central America until 1949. In 1954, he was called upon to re-join Luis and Agustín, this time on an "Official Cultural Mission" in Europe where the Trio Los Paraguayos were soon signed to Philips.

At the end of the mission, Digno remained in Belgium under the auspices of producer Jacques Kluger and continued touring and recording with Juan Alfonso Ramirez, Chinita Montiel and his own Digno Garcia Y Sus Carios group, amongst many others.

Digno Garcia died in hospital in the city of Geraardsbergen, northern Belgium, February 4, 1984 due to heart problems. In his lifetime he had outputted some 50 albums (including many own compositions), visited 47 countries, and counted royalty and Salvador Dalí amongst his fans. His 1944 composition "Cascada" (Waterfall) has become a standard of the Paraguayan repertoire.
