Vox Dei (Latin: God's Voice) is an Argentine rock band. Its most prolific years were the 1970s, having recorded 10 albums.
The band's original members were Jorge Carlos "Yody" Godoy (guitar and vocals), Ricardo SoulÃ© (guitar and vocals), RubÃ©n Basoalto (drums) and Willie Quiroga (bass and vocals).
In 1968 they recorded a version of Percy Sledge's "When a man loves a woman", and the company Mandioca organized a "test" for them in the PayrÃ³ theatre. The members of Manal and Almendra were also present, and a few hours later they played together. In 1970 they recorded for Mandioca their first album Caliente.
In the B.A. Rock Festival Vox Dei played the first part of the theme "Genesis", which had no lyrics yet. In February 1971 they released La Biblia (literally: 'The Bible'). This album was a turning point in the history of Argentine rock; even the Archdiocese, that had asked to examine the lyrics, recommended young people to buy it. Right after the recording of La Biblia, Jorge Godoy left the band and was replaced by Ignacio Smilari.
