Subject: RE: Greatest protest singer of the sixties
I see above that somebody mentioned Victor Jara (1932-73) of Chile in 2005. I didn't know anything about Jara then, but I learned a lot about him when we included several of his songs in the Rise Again Songbook in 2015. Many of his performances are available on YouTube, and they are truly remarkable. Powerful songs, and an absolutely beautiful voice.!
