The Tekis, the representatives of jujeño folklore

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


Jujeño folklore is characterized by the cheerful imprint that convey its rhythms and dances. We can see it in the famous carnivalito, the pin pin or the northern dance. It's a kind of music that runs through every room, from peñas, bowliches, houses to the radio of a car. A great reference in  jujujuño  folklore are  Los Tekis .

Tekis are made up of all that  northern cultural gene, including part of Bolivian culture. It is not only noted in the themes, but also in their native instruments such as Sikus, zampoñas, charangos and 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 Serenata Festival in Cafayate saw them debut. The consecration of Los Tekis would come four years later as it was part of the  historic   Cosquín Festival  in 1995.

The popularity of this band is growing without stopping, its rhythms are no longer only frequent in the northern lands.   Every year Tekis  travel more than a hundred thousand kilometers across the country, animating with their music different Argentine scenarios.

“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 alongside  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 rocker-folkloric album.
