About This Performance
Experience music of unmatched emotional power as generations of musicians pay homage to Violeta Parra, the most important singer-songwriter-storyteller in the history of Chile. You’ll be moved by her songs about struggle, defiance and triumph – songs that were the basis for Chile’s New Song (Nueva Canción) movement, which spread throughout Latin America and beyond. Join Ana Tijoux, Illapu, Francisca Valenzuela and Columbina Parra for this once-in-a-lifetime tribute to Parra as they reinterpret classics like Gracias a La Vida, Volver a los Diecisiete and many more.
Come for: Chile’s leading artists paying tribute to a rebel legend.
This engagement of Gracias a la Vida: The Rebel Spirit of Violeta Parra is made possible through Southern Exposure: Performing Arts in Latin America, a program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation.
Tour support for Colombina Parra is provided by the Chilean Embassy
