Homage to Violeta Parra (from Chile) @ La Peña // Berkeley

Homage to Violeta Parra (from Chile) @ La Peña // Berkeley

An evening celebrating Chilean folklorist Violeta Parra’s 100 years of cultural legacy, featuring the La Peña Community Chorus performing the cantata (concert) “Canto Para Una Semilla”, plus artwork, dances, poetry, and murals by Los Pobres Artistas.

During the middle part of the last century, Violeta Parra traveled the length and breadth of Chile collecting the folk songs of the people of the country-side, popularizing them with concerts in her Santiago venue, “La Carpa.”

She was a one-woman “Smithsonian Institution” for Chile and Latin American culture and without her efforts much of the folk music of Chile would have been lost because Chilean culture was rarely featured on the radio, in films or on television.
