Re: [xmca] Second funeral held for Chilean activist Victor Jara
I deeply and profoundly love him, he is one of the most important and loved
musicians in my life...
I remember Silvio Rordriguez from Cuba, when he came with Chucho Valdes and
his group Irakere to Santiago de Chile in 1990 and gave a concert in that
very same national stadium in which Victor was assassinated brutally, a
concert which, he declared to nearly 80 thousand people, that he
dedicates to Victor.
I also know that later the stadium was named Victor Jara National Stadium,
that the widow of Victor, Joan, nowadays struggles for the declaration of it
as national cultural heritage.
