Mercedes Sosa - A Que Florezca Mi Pueblo (1975)

In 1970 Mercedes Sosa took part in Leopoldo Torre Nilsson’s film "El Santo de la Espada", and released two very important records in her career: "El grito de la tierra" and "Navidad con Mercedes Sosa". During this period she recorded, among others, "Canción con todos” and "Cuando tenga la tierra" by Ariel Petrocelli and Daniel Toro, and the beautiful "La Navidad de Juanito Laguna" by "Cuchi" Leguizamón and Manuel J. Castilla.

Two records were released in 1971: "La voz de Mercedes Sosa" and "Homenaje a Violeta Parra", an album which compiled almost a dozen songs by the great protagonist of the Chilean “Canto Popular” (Popular Song). That year Mercedes also took part in Güemes - la tierra en armas, a film directed by Leopoldo Torre Nilsson. In a brief but significant role, she played the Upper Peru heroine Juana Azurduy.

In 1972 "Hasta la victoria" was released; it was a record featuring songs loaded with social and political content. Those were times in which a few composers and also singers like Mercedes Sosa were involved in and committed to militant activity, through which they wanted to help make the world a fairer and more equitable place. That year she was also the voice of "Cantata Sudamericana", with Ariel Ramírez’s music and Félix Luna’s lyrics.

"Traigo un pueblo en mi voz" was released in 1973, a year of upheaval caused by the return to democracy, and prologue to a difficult and violent period in Argentine history. Mercedes continued along the same lines as her previous work and recorded some songs with which she presented the Latin American reality.

Also in 1973 and 1974 she released two singles together with Horacio Guarany.

In 1975 "A que florezca mi pueblo" was released.
