Peteco: from Santiago del Estero to the world

Peteco Carabajal is one of the great ambassadors of Argentine folklore.


It all started in a dirt yard in the Los Lagos neighborhood (La Banda, Santiago del Estero), where a small Peteco Carabajal grew up among Sunday guitarreadas with his father Carlos and his uncle Agustín. One of our great folklorists of all time was born from this family tradition.
Cantor, guitarist, violinist and composer, Peteco debuted professionally in 1974 with “Santiago Trío” (alongside his cousin Roberto Carabajal and Shalo Leguizamón), with whom he recorded his first record material. The following year he joined the historic family group “Los Carabajal”.
“ Like birds in the air”, “Perfume de carnival”, “La estrella azul”, “I say the mazamorra”, “Puente Carretero”, “My grandmother danced la zamba”, to name just a few, are works that have toured the world and are already part of the cultural heritage of the Argentine people.
