The Tekis, the representatives of Jujian folklore

About 30 years of history, Los Tekis continue to carry their rhythms and culture throughout the country. Our tribute to this great folk ensemble.


Jujuño folklore is characterized by the joyful imprint of its rhythms and dances. We can see it in the famous carnival, the pin pin or the northern dance. It is a kind of music that crosses all environments, from rocks, bowling, houses to the radio of a car. A great reference in  Jujujano folklore  are  Los Tekis .

Tekis are composed of all that  northern cultural gene, including part of the Bolivian culture. It is not only noticeable in the themes, but also in their native instruments such as the Sikus, the Zampoñas, the Charangos and the Quenas.

 Sebastián López , Juanjo Pestoni , Mauro Colleti , Pipo Valdez , Walter Sader and Pucho Ponce make up this popular  folk band . In 1991, the stage of the Festival de la Serenade in Cafayate saw them debut. The consecration of Los Tekis came four years later as it was part of the  historic   Cosquin Festival  in 1995.

The popularity of this band grows endlessly, its rhythms are no longer only frequent in the northern lands. Every year  Los Tekis  travel over a hundred thousand kilometers across the country, cheering with their music various Argentinian stages.

“The boys”, the translation of “Los Tekis”, were encouraged to rock, transforming great themes from national rock to northern rhythms. They released the album  Rock & Tekis,  played with  Manuel Quieto de  la Mancha de Rolando and also with  Condor  and  Dani  de la Bersuit.  Juan Carlos Baglietto , Miguel Cantilo and Dread Mar-I were also part of the rock folkloric album.
