Thread Name: songs of Victor Jara (1932-1973)
Subject: RE: songs of Victor Jara
Hi, Karen - I thought that there'd be some Victor Jara songs in the database or forum, but I couldn't find a one. In 1993, Pete Seeger published a book called Where Have All the Flowers Gone?. That book has Jara's Spanish version of "If I Had a Hammer" and a song called "Estadio Chile." I guess I'd better get some work done today, so I don't have time to transcribe them. Maybe somebody else has the book and can transcribe at least one of them, and I'll do the other later. Anybody have any other Jara songs, or can you tell us his story?
