yo pisare las calles nuevamente

on this the 3rd week of music posts for NaBloPoMo, we (royal we) switch gears to a type of song that came to be in the 1970's and 1980's.  generally known as "cancion de protesta" (protest song), it was influenced by the sound and songs of the US anti-war movement of the 1960s.  a very large component and influence came from Cuba, where the "nueva trova de Cuba" or "nueva trova" (new song), arose after the Cuban revolution of 1959. 

this song is in reference to the Chilean coup d'etat of 1973 and references the murder of then Chilean President Salvador Allende
