the south death portends
over the border, its curse
The wind cuts barbed wire
galloping in flight prisoner of fear
When a response of bullets
buries the strike at the foot of a coirón.The Rebel Patagonia, by Ariel Arroyo
Ariel Arroyo was born on November 28, in the coal basin of the Río Turbio, southwest of the province of Santa Cruz. In April 2020 he presented his video clip on the theme “Patagonia Rebelde”. This song belongs to his album Al Sur del Cielo, from 2016, and the video features the participation of the late writer Osvaldo Bayer.
The video clip was made to lung. The singer didn't count with money to pay for its edition, so he did it, directed it, produced it and edited it himself. The first part of was filmed by Josefina Chevaliery; the rest of the video, with Juan Cruz Mansilla and Daniel Arroyo.

The English ranchers ask Yrigoyen to send the army to repress 1500 rural laborers shot. Facón Grande, Don José Font, when he was shot, shouted “That's how you don't kill a Creole”. There are the empty graves . But the memory remains forever.The Rebel Patagonia.

Violent repression is one of the deepest scars in the region.
not surprising that Ariel has dedicated his creativity to this historic chapter: this singer's devotion to landscapes and Patagonian history is palpable in each of its lyrics, in each of its melodies.
His first album Al Sur del Cielo (AQCUA label) was declared of Cultural Interest by the Senate of the
