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.
