Claudio Santomé (vocals) and Marcelo Puig (vocals and guitar) take over the Red Poppy with a variety of popular Argentine music from the 19th- and 20th-centuries—including milongas, folk, pop, tango and more.

Claudio Santomé has more than ten years experience singing the classical repertoire, from Bach to Verdi to contemporary composers such as Alberto Ginastera and Michael Tippet. Claudio has performed in venues such as Theater Colon (Buenos Aires), Jesuitkirche (Luzerne, Switzerland), Hertz Hall (Berkeley), and the Palace of Fine Arts (San Francisco).

“Claudio Santomé sang superbly.”
—Michael Zwiebach,

Marcelo Puig was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He began studying classical guitar at age eleven. Marcelo has performed and recorded with rock bands and numerous international artists. He draws his guitar style from a wide range of popular musical influences, including jazz, tango, Latin American folklore and Brazilian rock.
