If there is an emblematic place in the country for folk music is undoubtedly the Peña Balderrama , located in the beautiful city of Salta . Recently, this emblematic place turned 66, and received a tribute as it deserved.
The traditional rock Boliche Balderrama is considered the “ main temple of folklore ”. On the occasion of his anniversary, the Government of the province gave him special recognition, in which they handed a platelet in honor of Juan Balderrama , its deceased founder, who was received by his daughter Patricia.
Located on the corner of San Martín y Esteco, in the capital of Salta, this rock was born as a spicantry in the middle of the last century and summoned the main artists and bohemians from Salta, who gathered there to sing and compose songs and poems.
The house was immortalized in the renowned “ Zamba de Balderrama” , whose author was Manuel Castilla, with music by Gustavo “Cuchi” Leguizamón, who were frequent visitors to this still life. The song was then performed by Mercedes Sosa in the main folklore stages of the country.
“ A orillitas del canal, when the morning arrives, sings the night, from lo de Balderrama” , says its lyrics, reminiscent of this emblematic place they passed through the main folklorists in the country.
