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. We also had a chance to converse at WOMEX 2019 (the World Music Expo, in Finland this year) with Chilean musician Rodrigo Cepeda from Subhira Quartet and get insights into the current situation. ¡Viva Victor Jara! ¡Viva Chile! And long live Chilean music!
