Born in 1979 in the small town of Iruya (Salta, north-western Argentina), Micaela Chauque is an Argentine musician, composer, quena and panpipe player and coplera ("copla" singer), belonging to the indigenous Kolla community. She settled down in Tilcara (Jujuy, north-western Argentina), and devoted herself to recovering, reactivating and spreading musical traditions from north-western Argentina. She has taken part in many cultural events and music festivals, and is regarded as the Argentine Andean aerophones player who sticks most to the traditional musical practices.
