Zarate: Es el huracàn EP (2006)
Zarate: Terremoto EP (2008)



History/Background of Zarate:
Ramirez and the three mute Mariachis…

On one of his journeys across Middle and South America Ramirez, searching for his no longer existing Mexican hometown San Pedro, met three musicians from Zarate /Argentina.
They were heading for Texas, driving a pitiful herd of cattle in front of them
As Miguel, Antonio and Jose had never been successful Mariachis in Argentina, they
wanted to try their luck in Texas / Estados Unidos for the last time, and in order to keep themselves above water they made a living as Gauchos. Unfortunately, the Argentinian cattle breeders’ ritual was unknown to them: When a greenhorn Gaucho starts his work, his tongue is cut off immediately, which explains why this profession
has always suffered from a lack of young workers.
Thus, the tragic moment that lay in this memorable meeting couldn’t have been more crucial.
Ramirez decided to pay for a crossing to Europe.
So they left their cattle and boarded a ship in San Salvador / El Salvador, and on this ship they decided to found a band, once having arrived in Europe.
The band’s name should remind the mute Hermanos of their home: Zarate!
