I absolutely love Argentine folk music (música folclórica). Maybe even more so, I love how much Argentinians love their folk music.
And it’s not just a generational thing. Everyone gets it. Everyone knows how to dance to it, clap to it, and sing to it the way most of us gringos do with Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, Bing Crosby’s White Christmas, or Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
Ready to get my folk fill, we headed with some friends to Los Cardones (called a “peña folclórica”) in Palermo near Plaza Italia. I highly recommend anyone in Buenos Aires to do the same thing!Los Cardones Peña Folclórica

Tip: Eat dinner beforehand to save some money and remember to call for reservations to get better seats. Definitely go with friends or make some friends there quickly.
