This pair of brothers, members of the Tabajara tribe of northern South America, were one of the most unlikely successes of the space age pop era. Nearly 20 years after they first began recording professionally and in the midst of the twist craze, they had a Top 10 pop hit with their cover of “Maria Elena”, a Mexican folk tune first popularized in the U.S. by Jimmy Dorsey. RCA and their promoters have always drawn a veil of mystery around Los Indios Tabajaras, so it’s tough to trace their early years accurately. Eventually, they both mastered the guitar and their RCA recording career began in 1943. RCA - both the U.S. and Latin American divisions - continued to record them well into the 1980s, and their mellow guitar style proved a big influence on a new generation of guitarists such as Rick Vito.
