Victor Jara

Gran cantautor chileno de musica folclórica chilena que fue injustamente y cruelmente asesinado por el asesino gobierno de-facto  de Augusto Pinochet en los primeros días del golpe militar en el Estadio Nacional de Santiago. Tras su INJUSTA muerte Jara se convierte en una de las victimas mas reconocidas de la dictadura Chilena y hoy día es un icono por su gran musica y desafortunadamente por su trágica muerte.

Books

I LOVE BOOKS!!! The Outsiders is one of my favorite classics and I look forward to reading it again.  The movie is equally amazing.  A new book in my #toreadlist is Women Who Run With the Wolves. I found this book thanks to the wonderful movement of book sharing started by Actress Emma Watson.  I’ve been a book fairy for a while now.  🙂

Forrest Gump

I can’t believe it’s been 23 years since this movie came out. I was just a kid back then and for a while I didn’t like nor understood this movie. When I saw it for the second time in my early 20’s I still didn’t think much of it.  Years passed and when I saw it again I fell in love with it. Tom Hanks gives a heartwarming touching performance, and well deserved the Oscar he got for this role.  I love it! From the message of the movie to the incredible soundtrack. Now I consider this movie a masterpiece of American film history, right up there with ET and Star Wars. Beautiful movie!

Sophie and the Rising Sun

Incredible book and movie. It is Devastating that after all the “advances” We Humans have supposedly made we still have the same amount  (if Not More) of Ignorance, Bigotry, Hatred and Racism as before. The movie is now available on Netflix.

Indie Rock and Indie Folk Music

Thanks to Spotify and Pandora I have discover these AMAZING Independent musicians. I have been a Huge fan of Australian indie rock band Tame Impala for a few years but I recently discover British indie folk singer Blanco White on Spotify with the Beautiful song Colder Heavens. Blanco White perfectly blends Andean music and Spanish (flamenco) guitar. You can hear the Andean influence in the song Colder Heavens and El Búho. I myself prefer Andean music over flamenco music, but the fusion of the two sounds incredible.  Another great discovery was the band Imaginary Future.
