Subject: RE: BS: Commemorating 11 September
Larry, thank you for reminding us of Victor Jara (not Hara), the Chlean folk singer and song writer who was tortured, mutilated, and murdered during the coup in Chile on September 11, 1973. I had the pleasure of hearing Victor in person on his one visit to the USA. Pete Seeger brought him out as a guest to do one song. It was Me Gustan los Estudiantes. I recall how much Victor reminded me of Phil Ochs.
