"El Gavilán" Tribute to Violeta Parra
Wednesday, February 7th, 2018
Chilean singer, songwriter, folklorist, social activist, poet, and visual artist Violeta Parra would have celebrated her 100th birthday this year. In her new recording, El Gavilán, vocalist, songwriter and producer Sofia Rei celebrates her legacy by approaching her music with the imagination and daring that characterize Parra’s work. The results — spacious and almost minimalist, the vocals layered with loops and pedal effects — illuminate Parra´s work from unexpected angles.
