Jorge Cafrune

Jorge Antonio Cafrune was one of the most popular Argentinian folklorist singers of his time, as well as an unflagging investigator, compilator, and diffuser of the native culture.

Jorge Cafrune was born in the estancia "La Matilde" of El Sunchal, Perico Del Carmen, Jujuy. He completed his secondary studies in San Salvador de Jujuy, during which he took guitar classes with Nicolas Lamadrid.

In 1957 he recorded his first disk with the band Las voces de Huayra that in 1960 changed its name to Los cantores del Alba, with Ariel Ramirez as manager. Beginning in 1962, Cafrune began to perform at the Cosquin Folkloric Festival. In 1966 in one of his visits to smaller villages, he met a young folklorist singer called Jose Larralde.
