Thread Name: songs of Victor Jara (1932-1973)
Subject: RE: songs of Victor Jara
I knew several Chilean musicians in exile who had worked with Victor. A great poet, a great singer, and a great man. He didn't deserve to die as he did, and neither did the others who were in the stadium in those days after the coup. I really wish justice had been done while Pinochet was alive. He, and many others, should have gone to prison.
