Thread Name: songs of Victor Jara (1932-1973)
Subject: RE: songs of Victor Jara
Rise Up Singing as several Victor Jara song lyrics and a short explanation of his history on page 56. They don't list him in the artist section, but check out the songs in the Spanish section. He was a supporter of Salvador Allende and was shot in the coup in which Allende committed "suicide" by shooting himself several times and then jumping out of a window.
