Carajo is a rock band from Buenos Aires, Argentina. It was formed in 2000 with Marcelo "Corvata" Corvalan on bass and vocals, Andres "Andy" Vilanova on drums and Hernan "Tery" Langer on guitar and backing vocals. The first two share the history of having been part of the band A.N.I.M.A.L..


2000: Band Creation[edit]

Creation of Carajo with Corvata on bass and vocals, Andy on drums and Tery on guitar and backing vocals. Their first show is at "La Diabla" on May 4 with the band Ritual. They also play in neighbouring Uruguay.

2002: Debut Album: Carajo[edit]

Recording of their first full-length album, Carajo, officially presented on May 7 at The Roxy in Buenos Aires. In November they play at Colombia's Rock al parque festival in front of 80,000 people. The band is named "Breakthrough Band of 2002" by the most important newspapers in Argentina.


They play Cosquin Rock, one of the most important summer festivals in Argentina, before 14,000 people. The EP Carajografia is released and they are nominated for an MTV Latin America video music award for "Best New Artist"

2004: Atrapasueños[edit]

Release of the second full-length studio album, Atrapasueños (Dreamcatcher) and its successful presentation in front of 3000 people at Buenos Aires' "Republica Cromañon" (nearly a month before the tragedy at the same venue ends the life of 194 people during a Callejeros concert). This year also features their first visit to Paraguay.

2005: Electrorroto Acustizado 2.0[edit]

Carajo's first visit to Bolivia and Chile. Due to an accident (Andy's broken wrist), important shows are cancelled, which results in the band experimenting with new sounds and musical styles. Months later, the band releases Electrorroto Acustizado 2.1 (Acustified Electrobroken 2.1), a one-off show were they remade their own songs and played covers (Andy actually played the show, still with a cast on his forearm/hand). The live CD Electrorroto Acustizado 2.1 is released.


Carajo writes a new chapter in Argentinian rock by becoming the first band ever to play in Cuba. The band returns to Uruguay and visits Panama for the first time.

2007: Inmundo[edit]

After many delays, the band's third studio album Inmundo is released. The DVD Formando Asi Cada Parte Del Todo (Thus Forming Each Part of the Everything) containing footage of their show at Arena Obras Sanitarias in November 2005, and from their trip to Cuba is postponed indefinitely after many delays in its release (apparently due to technical problems). The band's first visit to Venezuela is slated for mid-August.


These days, Carajo is at studio, writing songs for the new album, which is going to be released in early 2010.

2010: El Mar De Las Almas[edit]
