Soledad Pastorutti: the woman who reinvented national folklore

Soledad Pastorutti, a woman from Santa Fe who brought many young people back to folklore and had a career full of successes and recognitions.


 Soledad Pastorutti  was a teenager in 1996 when she won the Cosquín Festival  , the same stage where she had failed  the previous year. He was not left with that refusal that could have demotivated any girl and, despite her young age,  he was betting big again  , like everything in her life. She performed with her sister,  Natalia Pastorutti , but her passion, energy and scenic presence made her a reference in   folklore na    c   ional .

  Turning the poncho   to the wind, and for the horror of the traditionalists of  folklore  , Soledad knew how to make many  young  people hear a renewed folklore. It was a  refreshment  that discartoned the already beloved  Chalchaleros  or  Fronterizos  who had been repeating  zambas  and  chacareras  with the usual imprint. For years,  folklore  was reserved at a certain age or social group, but it was not popular. La   Sole ,  with its freshness, managed to rescue this musical tradition and transform it into a  national  and  popular   success  .
