From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Luis Eduardo Aute (born Manila, September 13, 1943) [1] is a Spanish musician, singer-songwriter, film director, painter and poet.




First years in the Philippines

Luis Eduardo Aute was born in Manila, the capital of the Philippines, on September 13, 1943. His father, a Catalan (born in Catalonia, Spain), had been working in that country since 1919, for a tobacco company, and was married to a Filipino descendant of Spanish bourgeoisie.[2] In his childhood, Aute studied at the De La Salle School, where he learned English and Tagalog, which is used within his family. At an early age he showed great ability as a painter and sketcher. Another childhood passion was cinema; his interest in filmmaking was abetted by his parents' giving him an 8 mm camera, which he used to produce home-made movies with his friends.

At 8 years old, he traveled to Spain for the first time. In Madrid, with the Hotel Avenida Orchestra, he sang for the first time in public, interpreting the song Las hojas muertas (The Dead Leaves). At age 9 he watched "On the Waterfront", a movie that had a powerful influence on him and inspired him to write his first poems in English. Another cinematic influence at that age was the movie Niagara, where he discovered the eroticism and sensuality of Marilyn Monroe.

Return of the family to Spain

In 1954 after a short stay in Barcelona, returns definitively to Madrid, where Luis Eduardo studies in the "Colegio Nuestra Señora de las Maravillas" (Catholic based School). At 15 years old, with his new bithday present guitar, he performed in end of School party in a Trio with other two school mates. In those years and very influences by the German Expressionism, dedicates most of his time to paint and wins a silver model in a Spanish "II Art Juvenile Contest".
