Soledad Pastorutti "La Sole" is an Argentine folklore singer, who brought the genre to the younger generations at the end of the 20th century, and the beginning of the 21st.
After one year singing in over 181 villages and cities in Argentina, Soledad was already popular in the whole country and by the time her second album was released, her first album became a huge hit in Argentina.
Edad del Sol was a huge production for Argentina's cinema standard and Clarin reported Soledad asked for three times more than an A-list Argentine actor asks for a movie. The movie, about a graduation trip, was shot in Bariloche. The movie was not as successful as expected and Manuelita, a cartoon based on a popular children song, stole the spotlight and was the most successful national movie in 20 years. The movie also was not well received by critics.
