¡Que Viva el Canto! Songs of Chile


Over one hundred years and three regions of Chilean folk song style are summed up in this contemporary musical tour-de-force led by singer, guitarist, and composer Rafael Manríquez and friends. Guitar and harp-driven country tonadas, Andean cachimbos with charango and quena, southern Chiloé island songs with accordion, political nueva canción, edgy urban cuecas, and more offer a glimpse of Chilean folk music of today in its eclectic diversity. Guest artists include Eduardo Peralta, Héctor Pavez, Pedro Yáñez and a dozen other mainstays of the Chilean folksong movement. Bilingual, 44-page booklet, 73 minutes.
