This week is a very special edition of Beat Latino, a homage to the eternal spirit of art, the power music and its possibility to transform society. Forty years ago, Chile was plunged into decades of dictatorship in a military coup that also took poet activist and singer/songwriter Victor Jara’s life. This week’s Beat Latino is a musical tribute to Victor Jara and the enduring spirit of Chile’s music, which has emerged from those dark times. ¡Viva Victor Jara! ¡Viva Chile! And long live Chilean music!
