Erin's Journey to Argentina

Current Location

Esquel, Chubut, Argentina

Mari mari! Hello everyone! My name is Erin, and I am excited to have you join me on my journey to Argentina to research language and music in one of the southernmost parts of the world.


This week, my dad traveled to Argentina to visit me! I had so much fun showing him around the city of Esquel, where I live. We also visited Bariloche and Lago Rosario. I miss him already!


In this week's post, I share some things that I have learned about song and musical instruments in the Mapuche community. I especially enjoyed learning how to sing ülkantun and play the trutruka!

Field Notes

What are the landscape and climate of Patagonia like? In this post, I'll share with you some of its defining features.


This week was very busy for me! I attended many events in Esquel, and then I traveled to see my friend Sarah in Bariloche. Here are some photos from my week!
