Who is Hugo Far?

Hugo Ricardo Far, born on February 13, 1953 in Buenos Aires, is an Argentine bassist and double bassist. At the age of 15, he started playing electric bass with friends from the neighborhood in Olivos, later forming a group where they performed songs from both national and international bands of the time, as well as their own compositions.

Rock bands from the 60s and 70s, such as Creedence Clearwater Revival, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Yes, Pink Floyd, Pescado Rabioso, Invisible, Manal, Pappo Blues, El Reloj, among others, influenced his music. Later on, he expanded his influence towards Brazilian music (MPB, bossa nova, samba) and, from the 90s to the present, became interested in jazz, dixieland, swing, and later Django Reinhardt and all the national and international groups playing gypsy swing.

Throughout his career, he has been part of several bands and ensembles, including “Acceso Norte,” his first band with original songs, Pax Orbis (rock), “Lulú” (hard rock), “Sambadois” (MPB), “Rubro 34” (jazz), “La Voz Cantante” (jazz), Cecilia Mara (MPB), Vai embora (MPB), Hugo Travi Trio and Quintet, Swing Tzigane, Osvi Blues (rock and blues), and Maria Jose Cantilo (rock).

He has participated in prominent festivals and shows such as Jazz al Atardecer, Jazzología, Festival Internacional Django, and Casa de la Cultura de Nogoyá (Entre Ríos), among others.

Currently, Hugo works as a double bassist for Swing Tzigane, Hugo Travi Quintet, and as a bassist for Osvi Blues. Additionally, he is part of Swing Tzigane (gypsy jazz) and Osvi Blues (rock and blues).
