Los Mansoros: six decades and an export folklore

The Mansers and their identity unalterable in time. A unique style, with a fine Argentinian label, abroad. We tell you his story.


 Los Mansoros Santiagueños  have already traveled more than half a hundred years and their musical style remains unchanged. The folklore group was born in the city of La Banda,  Santiago del Estero . In Cosquín 2020 they started another decade with their already traditional folklore.

The number of albums released is almost the same as the years they have been on stage. Among the most popular themes are “Añoranzas”, “Canto a Monte Quemado”, “La 7 de abril” and “Cruzando el dulce”, among others.

 What makes Los Mansers unique? 

The last 60 years there were many modifications in folklore, which impacted rhythms, trends and instruments. Elements that did not take place in the Los Manseros band. His music is still built on the same principles as in '59. Chacarera, bass drum and guitar constitute the  spirit  of his songs. We're not going to find more than that, they didn't implement batteries, bass, or instruments associated with other genres.


In so many years different artists passed, but the identity of Los Manseros remains intact. Guillermo Reynoso, Leocadio del Carmen Torres, Carlos Carabajal and Carlos Leguizamón are  folklorists  who have died. But they were the protagonists of this historical band of national folklore. Agustín Carabajal, Cuti Carabajal, Manuel Jaime, Valentín Campos, Domingo Rojas and Martín Paz formed this band, although some are no longer part.

 Local and export folklore 

The last important event of Los Manseros was at the First Moon of the  Cosquin 2020 Festival,  in Cordoba. They were also present in Jesus Mary. Folklore is part of our popular culture and basically our identity. No matter where in the world we are, we never lose that identity. In the United States there is a large community of Argentines, so Los Mansoros Santiagueños will tour in the North American country.
