Born in the year 1939, in the town of Carrilobo, Province of Córdoba. When he was 4 years old, he travelled to the capital city, Córdoba, and settled with his family. He didn't rest until he could make true one of his most desired dreams: to meet the mountains. His first encounter with this new landscape was at the age of 13. From that moment, he was touched by this other Northern region of the Argentina.
By that time, he began his artistic incursions. As he was a member of the Folklorical Dance Group of the Rivera Indarte Theatre of Córdoba and he was doing drawing and painting studies at the "Dr. Figueroa Alcorta" Arts State School, he was adding to his artistic vocation the practice of singing and playing the guitar.
His first public presentation took place in January 1953, at the LV2 Auditorium (called "Radio Central" by then), of Córdoba. When he decided to embrace the guitar, says the artist himself, "I didn't do it to make better or worse things nor to compete, as the saying, in this competitive life...". He did it with the necessary meditation a man must have to define his life and choose his path.
In 1958 his name was already known all over the country: LS82 Tv Canal 7, LR4 Radio Splendid, RCA Víctor, among others, conformed the media group that spread his long-time work as an author, composer and artist. No one like him, in the field of the folk popular music, since his first zamba "Guitarrero", signed with the nickname of "José Piedra Ríos", has ever tried so ample cycles of integral works: “Concierto Supersticioso” (1964); “El Nacimiento de la Vidalita” (1965); “Canto Monumento” (1967); “La Conquista del Desierto” (1970); “El camino del Quijote” (1972); “Cantata Brocheriana” (1980), were just some of the fundamental hits in his simbiotic purpose of unite all the popular music, both measuredly and cultly. A sample of it it's the number of concerts he performed since 1974, with many different organisms of instrumental hierarchy: the Symphonic Orchestra of Córdoba, the Chamber Orchestra of Bahia Blanca, the String Quartet of the National University of Mar del Plata, between others...
Carlos Di Fulvio is a self-learning person. Advised by teachers, such as Domingo Soderini, Francisco Javier Ocampo, María Luisa Anido and Mario Perini, he's been able to perform with solvece in front of the demands of the public agreement along this time. Today, as his poetry work (both for high school and terciary levels) has becomed an analysis material, his music is part of the study program in several conservatories for the formation of new Argentinian guitar players.
This man from Córdoba, born in the Pampa, yet identified with the Northern Córdoba, has given to the Argentinian folk music some of his most classical works. To the previosly mentioned "Guitarrero", we can add Campo Afuera, ¿Se acuerda Doña Maclovia?, Cerro Salamanca y Un paso aquí, un tranco allá.
