Los de Ramón are a Chilean folkloric group of vast trajectory and extended musical diffusion not only in Chile, also in Latin America. Conformed by the family group of Raul de Ramon, his wife Maria Eugenia and his two children Carlos Alberto and Raul Eduardo were of great importance like diffusers and ambassadors of Chilean music like also of Latin American music. With Chomedahue —in the commune of Santa Cruz— as their origin, they were dedicated to the investigation of Chilean and Latin American folklore interpreting its songs with the typical instruments of each country having in its presentations more of sixty different musical instruments played by themselves which were interchanged according to each country and region. They gave numerous concerts in the U.S.A. ( 92 concerts), Mexico as in the rest of Latin America.
They recorded more than thirteen longplays two of them made in Mexico with music from Chile and also from Latin America. Some of them are Arreo en el Viento, Nostagia Colchaguina, An image of Chile, Latino America folkloric Panorama (2 discs), Los de Ramon in Family, Chilean Mass and others. They received several prizes in Chile as in Mexico and made popular many songs of Raul de Ramon like The Curanto, Rosa Colorada, Nostalgia Colchaguina, Camino de Soledad, Cancion de la Caballeria among others. They were the first in Chile in using the typical instruments of each country influencing in other musical groups that adopted this initiative later. They became part of the traditional folkloric music that gave impulse to Chilean music.
They also created a Restaurant named El Alero de Los de Ramon, destinated to the diffusion of folkloric music and their traditions.
They also contribute in the creation of new folkloric musical groups such as Los Cantores de Santa Cruz and Los de Santiago among others.
