Quelentaro was formed in 1960. Its original members were brothers Gaston and Eduardo Guzman, Felipe Mendez (Tatayaya) Valericio Leppe, Arinaldo Eladio Lopez and Alvarez, Guzman brothers being born to peasant parents of Mapuche descent, were the most stable members during most of the groups history. Their first album was "Carpa de la Reina de Violeta Parra", because Violeta helped Quelentaro when they were starting up. After recording the album "Huella Campesina" in 1967 the group disbanded becoming Quelentaro the duo of brothers Guzmán.
