My first influence was my grandfather, Carlos Luis Garibotti who did magic very well, as a hobby. Unfortunately, he stopped belonging to this world when I was barely 3 and a half years old. Luckily my mother, Elena, had learned to the letter several of the games that my grandfather made, and served as a perfect incentive for me which greatly influenced the decision to dedicate my life to this art so exciting!
At 11 I started with my first steps. In 1982 I entered the Fu-Manchu magic school, Thyango being my teacher. I graduated in 1986 and continued learning with books and videos.
That same year I decided to attend a Magic Convention, in San Pablo, Brazil, with the full support of my parents, and with the excellent company of my aunt María Inés, and it was there that I began to understand the importance of attending everyone the magic events that were possible for me, and thus to learn from the great teachers ...
The following year I competed for the first time, and it was at FLASOMA 87, (convention organized by the Latin American Federation of Magical Societies in Argentina), where I won the 2nd prize.
At that time my stage name was Hernán, my real name. In 1990, my friend, Mariano Colosimo, suggested Henry Evans and told me that he had thought about joining the names of 2 film artists: Henry for "Henry Ford" and Evans for "Linda Evans", and I really liked it and since then Henry Evans is my stage name.

There we present "La magia de la Camerata Bariloche", a show combining magic and music with a common thread where the transformation of the clothes of all musicians in sight (from informal clothes to Frac), The appearance of Mozart, while the orchestra performed "The little nocturnal serenade", a self-levitation, where I levitated and disappeared, reappearing among the audience, and also comedy magic with the string of a violin where I explained to the public through an effect, What happens if a rope breaks, cutting it and recomposing it in sight. The show had its original ending when he invited them to tour with me, and there the 15 musicians all entered, magically, with their instruments, inside a small suitcase.
