Gustavo “Cuchi” Leguizamón (1917 - 2000)
Strongly attached to his native land, “Cuchi” became one with the landscape of Salta.
He was a charismatic multifaceted man, but mainly a brilliant and irreverent musician.
Moreover, he was able to combine the anonymous voices of the popular music of the northwest of Argentina with the world’s musical avantgarde and the universal sonority.
The author of “zambas”, “chacareras” and “vidalas” (all these different typical rhythms) of incomparable beauty, his pieces pervaded the scope of Argentine folklore music, weaving a universe of sounds and melodies which was completely new and refreshingly vital.
