Placido Domingo has been associated with a cult that is under investigation in Argentina for human trafficking for at least 26 years.

Placido Domingo has been in contact with at least four sect leaders of the Buenos Aires Yoga School (EYBA) for 26 years. Two have been detained, one is on the run, and the other died four years ago. On February 20, 1996, the tenor gave a concert at the Campo Argentino de Polo in Buenos Aires. There were some changes in the program that evening. Sunday’s performance concluded with the opera “Letters Marked” composed by Susanna Mendelevich, known as Mendy and a historical member of the organization, and Rubén D’Artagnan González, a renowned violinist who, according to the petitioner, was to open the Chicago branch of the EIBA cult. The closing of this concert was in a duet with Veronica “Loya” Iacono, then a lyrical debutante, and today wanted by Interpol for her involvement in the organization in the United States. The fourth member of the sect with whom the tenor had a relationship is Luis Perkovich, the leader.

According to the case, at least seven women were sexually exploited and forced into forced organization by their families when they were still children or teenagers. Justice has three audio recordings that mention an artist named “Plácido” is requesting sexual favors from the organization. They identified the voice of Susana Mendelevich, 75, and Juan Perkovich, 84, the leader of the community. Both were arrested a week ago. The third voice will belong to the 81-year-old tenor and conductor from Madrid, who visited Buenos Aires in April to give a concert at the Teatro Colon after two decades without setting foot on Argentine soil.

elDiarioAR consulted several sources with access to the file and confirmed that the audio recordings were obtained from wiretapping conducted over the past four months. And also established contact between the tenor and the organization through a complaint filed with the Prosecutor’s Office for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings and Exploitation of Human Beings (Protex), the testimony of the complainants and the transfer of data. This information, published in the newspaper La Nación, is an account of a concert that took place 26 years ago at the Campo Argentino de Polo. Placido Domingo thanked violinist Rubén D’Artagnan González for his participation in the show. That same year, Domingo was named an outstanding citizen of the city of Buenos Aires.

Last year, Mendelevich and Iacono, whose stage name Loiácono and the organization called her “Loia”, released the unreleased album Por amor al amor. Women – one detained and the other on the run – are part of the LGCM quartet. These are the initials of their names and those of González, who was honored by the Konex Foundation in 1989, and Mariano Krawczyk, an oboist who went by the last name Krause. He is the stepfather of Pablo Salum, a 44-year-old man who denounced the sect in Argentine justice last year. Krause was part of the EYBA. She entered the community with the intention of “saving” her partner, Salum’s biological mother. He failed and left the organization on good terms. He was arrested last week along with 18 other people. There are also eight fugitives: four are outside Argentina.

Krause was something of a “son” to Rubén D’Artagnan González, who was born in Viale, in the Argentinean province of Entre Ríos, in 1939. At the age of five, he learned to play the violin. He studied in France and Italy and in 1964 received an Honorary Diploma from the Chijiana Academy in Siena, Italy. In Argentina he conducted Camerata Bariloche from 1971 to 1975. Two years later he settled in the United States and conducted the strings of the Minnesota Orchestra until 1981. From that year to 1986 he conducted the Houston Orchestra. In 1986 he moved to Chicago and conducted the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. According to Salum, he is the founder and head of the Chicago chapter of the cult.

In 2005, they wanted to award González as “outstanding Vialense”, the city of his birth, but despite their efforts, they were unable to find him. He was even tracked down through the Argentine embassy in the US, but no one could find him. During the ceremony in Viala, his name and extensive resume were mentioned, but no one received the statuette. In April, when Placido Domingo visited Buenos Aires, Gonzalez had been dead for four years. Contacts between the tenor and Escuela Yoga Buenos Aires were still intact, investigators said.
