Description
Octavio Corvalán was born in Santiago del Estero, Argentina, in 1923. After secondary school in Santiago he went to Tucumán to study Philosophy and Letters graduating in 1944. His great interest in folklore stems from the rural life he lived as a child. He learned to play the guitar while still in secondary school and later studied linguistics in order to track down the influence of indigenous languages on the Spanish mother tongue. These studies led to a fellowship at the University of Washington. He has been performing as a folk singer in personal appearances and on the radio for many years in many cities of his country and has lectured and written essays and articles on folk poetry and music.

Octavio Corvalán nació en Santiago del Estero, Argentina en 1923. Después de estudiar la secundaria en Santiago se marchó a Tucumán a estudiar Filosofía y Letras, graduándose en 1944. Su gran interés en el folclor surgió de su niñez vivida en el campo. Aprendió a tocar la guitarra durante la secundaria, y posteriormente estudió lingüística para trazar la influencia de las lenguas indígenas en el castellano. Estos estudios lo llevaron a obtener una beca en University of Washington. Corvalán ha aparecido como intérprete tanto en persona como en la radio por muchos años en varias ciudades de su país y ha dado conferencias y escrito varios ensayos y artículos sobre música y poesía popular.
