Victor Jara’s Memory

5 May

Victor Jara: "PONGO EN TUS MANOS ABIERTAS..."

Victor Jara: Sigue abriendo en Los caminos el surco de tu destino la alegra de sembrar no te la puedan quitar."

Chilean folksinger Victor Jara (1932–1973) was the voice of his country’s dispossessed, an internationally admired songwriter, and one of the founders of a new genre of Latin American song. He was killed by Chilean security forces during the coup that deposed the country’s elected president, Salvador Allende, in September of 1973.
