    Being a melomaniac myself, I think that politics and music are so intertwined throughout this country and other countries' history.

    I spent 1/3 of mi life living in Chile, and some of it during the Dictatorship of Pinochet. Canto Nuevo was a musical movement that flourished in Latin America, and specially South America during the various military governments. They were the voice of opposition, the voice of hope and camaraderie.

    Silvio Rodriguez, Pablo Milanes, Sandra Mihanovic, Victor Jara and other. I grabbed my guitarr and with my long wavy hair ( hair, what a fon memeory for my spacious forehead) and in the middle of campus just started gathering people to sing these songs that sounded sweet and harmless , but that had a revolutionary messages for those with ears to find them.

    I will try to contribute with my bilingual heritage aspects of music that may not be well known.

      I know the great Victor Jara from his records.

      You could do a great piece on your own experiences, more so. Something to consider?

      "Space Available" is the largest retail chain in the nation.
