Inti Illimani – La Nueva Canción Chilena – Álbum completo (1974)


A reader of the blog introduced me to the band Inti Illimani, specifically the album “La Nueva Canción Chilena”.  They are a protest-era Chilean folk music ensemble.  As the reader who provided me the link to the above video pointed out, their instrumentation of guitars, voices, flutes, percussion and other instruments; their harmonies; and chord progressions are fascinating and refreshing.  I cannot take credit for this find–and perhaps that is one more reason why you should #listentothis.

      1. I love this tune, both in the album and the Rzewski! Don’t worry; your age is secret here 😉 But seriously, you carry an experience that not many of us in my generation understand. It’s a story that you should share, if you aren’t already, because it’s a vital part of our past–and so relevant to the present.
