As soon as his family moved to Buenos Aires, Jairo, known at that time as Marito González, started performing at local TV shows, later recording "El Laberinto," his first disc. In 1970, after teaming up with Luis González, an art student, Marito González reached Spanish Luis Aguilé, who signed him up, releasing Emociones. He soon came in first place at Costa del Sol festival with a song called "Javier y Paloma."

After recording in French, Italian, and German, Jairo made his acclaimed Amor De Cada Día, produced by Juan Carlos Calderón and released by RCA in 1983. The album was followed by 1985's Para Verte Feliz, produced by Pablo Herrero and José Luis Armenteros.
