About Us

Folk Ranch Argentine folklore music mainly refers to the integration of native expressions from different regions of the country accompanied by musical landscapes that arrived from far off territories and the very interesting contribution of regional migrations, from the country to the city, from the provinces to Buenos Aires. This myriad of landscapes, rhythms and textures entailed the occurrence of very interesting experiences of projection and fusion, without losing the local identity. Modified or newly incorporated instruments, different musical styles corresponding to different regions of the country harmonically tune the folklore music. By linking generations, a place of rendezvous with top artists in constant innovation, the Argentine folklore movement is renowned and valued in different countries of the world.

07 Soledad, the hurricane of Arequito

It is not difficult to understand why the Argentine interpreter Soledad is a true icon of the popular music nor why she casts a spell on young and old people alike. It is not casual either that she is called “the hurricane of Arequito”. The fact that Arequito is her birthplace and that she gives off energy thru her voice sufficiently accounts for her nickname

04 Mercedes Sosa

Mercedes Sosa (Haydée Mercedes Sosa), (born July 9, 1935, San Miguel de Tucumán, Arg.—died Oct. 4, 2009, Buenos Aires, Arg.), Argentine folk singer who was known as “the voice of the voiceless” for her songs that spoke of the struggle for economic and political justice. She was a leading proponent of the nueva canción movement of the 1960s, which used traditional music to express political themes. Sosa, who possessed a powerful and dramatic alto voice, was known as a peerless interpreter of songs written by others. Her first album, La voz de la zafra, appeared in 1959, but it was her 1965 performance at Argentina’s national folklore festival in Cosquín that brought her national attention and increasing popularity. After the military took power in 1976, she was subject to official harassment that culminated in the public arrest of Sosa, her band, and much of her audience at a concert in 1979. Sosa went into exile, during which time she began to expand her repertoire to includ...

01 The New Song Book

"The search of a national music with popular content has been one of the dearest objectives of the Argentine people. The artists, since the beginning of their own popular expression have tried to incorporate the diversity of gênres and other expressions of their own that matched their sensitivity, with the only objective of interpreting the whole country’s voice. Thus reads the manifesto of the Nuevo Cancionero or New Song Book, a movement that marks a before and after in the aesthetics and ethics of Argentine folklore whose influences are still present. Armando Tejada Gomez , Oscar Matus & Mercedes Sosa are some of the top referents of the music.
