let me introduce Gian Marco


I was looking at the stats and it seems that 30 seconds is the longest most people will watch of Gian Marco on my front page, or at least of his live performance of Se Me Olvidó. The few Europeans I get as visitors do seem to manage to watch the entire thing! I think it's b/c they're more willing to give something new a chance, whereas Americans are more likely to dismiss what doesn't immediately grab their attention.

Allow me introduce you all to...
