Sixto Doroteo Palavecino (March 31, 1915, Barrancas, Salavina, Santiago del Estero Province, Argentina – April 24, 2009, Santiago del Estero, same province) was a poet, musician and singer of Argentine folk music, who has played the violin since he was 10 years old.
Palavecino has been influential as a player, a compiler of folk traditions, and in sustaining the Santiago Quechua language through his music and the radio program "Alero Quechua Santiagueño" which he presented for many years with his son Rubén.
Palavecino has enjoyed wide recognition from colleagues and audiences throughout Argentina since the 1980s. In the years before that, he also worked as a barber to make ends meet.
