Abel Pintos, the favorite of summer

Bahian Abel Pintos shone on his summer tour, starring nights of unforgettable reunions and even a controversy.


The Argentine summer is full of festivals and artistic events that bring great figures to their stage. This prioritizes every show and also encourages tourism. Every summer there is usually some artist above the rest. It can be a consecrated or a revelation; this year, the figure was Abel Pintos. The Bahian shone in  Catamarca ,  San Juan ,  La Rioja and  Jujuy , among other provinces. This is a summary of what was part of the singer's tour in northern Argentina and Cuyo region.

 He finally came back 

Catamarca was waiting for Abel Pintos to return for a long time. The anxiety and desire of catamarqueans was felt, and perhaps this was why it was the province most visited by Pintos this summer. San Fernando del Valle, Mutquin and Tinogasta went crazy with the folk pop of Abel Pintos.

 From the controversy to the show 

His passage through La Rioja left behind the controversy of summer. The singer had been in a controversy with the Municipality of Chilecito. The mayor said that the cachet ordered by Abel Pintos was high and that they could buy an ambulance. The singer quickly recommended to the Municipality to buy the ambulance. This discussion ended with unconvincing apologies, as everyone held their version. Finally, the songs of Bahian did not reach Chilecito, but did reach the city of La Rioja.

 Luxury guest at the Los Tekis Carnival 

An unpostponable event for everyone is Carnival, and in the north you live in a different way. Especially in Jujuy, the land of  Los Tekis , who organize their own celebration and bring figures from all over the country, including Abel Pintos, who gave another rhythm to Jujuy's Carnival.

 A different relationship with the Sanjuanins 

Abel Pintos's summer tour had its last appointment in San Juan, at the National Sun Festival. With the Sanjuanins, the  folklorist  seems to have a special relationship. He recalled that this audience saw him grow and take great steps in his career. The special bond with the public of San Juan is remarkable.
