This link is to a more recent live-performance video.

This is a transitional personnel line-up of the band. Conspicuous by their absence are two of the three co-authors: José Seves and Horacio Salinas, who by this time had quarreled with the brothers Coulon and had abruptly left Inti-Illimani.

The brothers Coulon are visible in this performance: Marcelo Coulon singing the second verse and playing rhythm guitar; Jorge Coulon on one of the Afro-Latin percussion instruments, and of course singing. Someone else who can be seen, wearing his hat and looking very dressed up, is also playing a cowbell: this is Horacio Durán, who elsewhere specializes in the "charango" which is not played in this song. The other band members, many of them, are a younger generation and were accepted into Inti-Illimani once the exile in Europe was over and they had returned to their native Chile. I do not see Max Berrú, who was one of the few Inti-Illimani members to leave on good terms with everyone; he must by this time have decided against stage performances, while coming to terms with both the deafness in one ear, and with his second family following re-marriage, with whom he wanted to spend more time and not be on the road touring so much. This performance is during a big annual music festival in Chile.
