"Venceremos": Víctor Jara and the New Chilean Song Movement (PM Pamphlet)

This book is about Victor Jara
Dive into the stirring narrative of "Venceremos": Víctor Jara and the New Chilean Song Movement, a compelling exploration of how art and politics intermingle in times of societal upheaval. Published on July 1, 2014, this historical account captures the essence of the New Chilean Song Movement, which played a pivotal role during Salvador Allende's presidency starting in 1970. Through the lens of iconic folk singer Víctor Jara and groups like Inti-Illimani and Quilapayún, the book vividly recounts how these artists used their music as a form of resistance and mobilization, influencing both racial and economic justice and voting rights in Chile. From rural performances igniting the spirits of campesinos to the tragic aftermath of the U.S.-backed military coup on September 11, 1973, this narrative weaves together interviews, lyrical analysis, and historical insights, revealing the power of music as a force for political change. Ideal for adult education, "Venceremos" is more than a cultural history—it is an inspiring testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the transformative power of collective artistic expression. Reflect on how culture can both reflect and shape the political landscape in times of crisis and change.
