    Los Tabaleros are an argentine modern folklore band. For their second concept album “TUY!” they chose me to develop the graphics and Hernan Corera to shoot the photographs. TUY! means HOT! in Quechua, a native language of the region of the central Andes of South America. Keeping the traditional musical roots, their lyrics are unique and innovative, filled with black humor and unusual poetry.  We tried to reflect this two faces of their personality in the concept of the album. That's why in the cover the seven Tabaleros are featured as an old gangster band from Buenos Aires, posing like in a classic folklore album cover from the 50s with their beards set on fire, mixing the urban and the dangerous with the traditional. I created the lettering for the cover, searching for a vintage typographic look. For the interior I continued the 50s concept inspired in a standard old vinyl back cover to develop an unfolding sheet that contained 7 pictures of the members of the band with my own personal touch (the year they were born and the year they joined the band mimicking their deaths). This sheet also included the lyrics. Read Less

TUY: exclamación que remite al calor agresivo 
que puede dañar por su temperatura
que llega hasta la inconsciencia
que pela hasta los huesos

TUY: exclamation which refers to aggressive heat
which can damage for its temperature
that leads to unconsciousness
peeling to the bone
