CheChelos at The Poly

Chechelos is Argentina’s latest popular music revelation. An innovative approach to Argentinian Folklore presenting two cellos performing their own songs & lyrics as well as their own arrangements of folklore's classics. They have nationalized the instrument and built a bridge between traditional Peñas and theatre.

The duo, integrated by Ramiro Zárate Gigli and Mauro Sarachian, was born in 2015 during a tour of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Río Negro where both musicians played. One night, after a concert in a small town in Patagonia, the duo crossed the street to a local Pulpería where a Folklore jam with cellos instead of guitars spontaneously happened. It was love at first note. This night was the beginning of a liberation journey. A transition from classical cello players to popular music performers and composers.

In 2016 they officially launched their duo with a tour around Cordoba, motherland of Argentinian Folklore and home to the legitimate Cosquin Festival, where they were awarded only a year later, with the “Revelation” award. Encouraged by this unique recognition, the duo recorded their first album, a beautiful combination of complex arrangements with the smell of freshly watered Argentinean land.

As well as a power trio where Folklore meets singing, drums and cellos in a show that gives birth to a unique instrument created by CheChelos called la “Chelarra”, a fusion between guitar and cello that allows them to play while standing up and dancing around the crowd, Chechelos en Movimiento.
