Various Artists, Venceremos! A Tribute to Salvador Allende
September 11th marks the 30th anniversary of the death of Salvador Allende. Allende was the first Socialist to be elected president of Chile, but he was overthrown and died during a coup that ushered in 16 years of military rule. Initially based on history - the tragical 1973 military coup led by General Augusto Pinochet in Santiago, Chile - this record is a superb compilation of South-American music, a real "coup de maitre" by Angel Parra, a pivotal figure in the Chilean musical scene. Angel tells a tragic story and states the facts. This is, for all generations, an introduction to Chile's history and to the memory of Salvador Allende. This is an album about freedom and hope - a formidable tribute conceived with generosity, emotion and passion! Daring and essential! Featuring songs by: Angel Parra, Isabel Parra, Victor Jara Ventiscka and others.
