This paper invites to think on how a given art product articulates to some concerns developed by Latin American philosophy at different times in the 20th century, on the one hand, and to proposals advanced by thinkers from the so-called global South. on the other hand. More specifically, I will analyse to which extent Santiago-Argentinian singer Horacio Banegas’ work delivers, through folkloric music, a form of knowledge close to post-abyssal thinking. In this case, it is interesting to analyse to which extent his lyrics and music help us acknowledge spaces of heterogeneity as an integral part of our identity and subjectivity, without sliding into the parochial or provincial? Finally, thinking from the other side of the abyssal line calls for acknowledging an endless diversity of wisdoms, and opening social sciences towards other non-scholar wisdoms, as proposed by the artist mentioned.

Keywords: post-abyssal thinking; subjectivity; spaces of heterogeneity.
