Atahualpa Yupanqui is one of the most legendary figures of national folklore. Today we want to share 10 phrases that he left us:

When you give up payment and start to repeat, you throw the horse forward and the soul pulls back.

I was always goodbye... an arm up, a yaravi breaking in the stones when I wanted to stay there came the wind came the night and took me with her.

I am a singer of forgotten arts who walks around the world so that no one will forget what is unforgettable: poetry and traditional music of Argentina.

A deep desire lives in me: to be one day the face of a shadow without any image, and without history. To be only the echo of a barely chord song that points to his brothers. Freedom of the spirit.

I'm not afraid of death, what I do have respect for is the trance, the going there. I confess I'm curious to know what this is about.

The guitar with all its light, with all the sorrows and paths, and doubts. The guitar with its cry and its aurora, sister of my blood and my care, forever!
