VA - Tercer Festival de Oposición (1979)


The connection between music and politics, particularly political expression in music, has been seen in many cultures. This album features recordigs from the "Tercer Festival de Oposicion", organized in 1979 by the Mexican communist party and with guests from Angola, Cuba, Nicaagua, El Salvador and Guatemala.

Óscar Chávez (born 1935) is a Mexican singer, songwriter and actor. He was the main exponent of the Nueva Trova in Mexico in the sixties and seventies. He is also noted for his strong social commitment as well as for the left wing ideas expressed in his lyrics. His impressive discography spans four decades.

María Amparo Ochoa Castaños, (1946-1994) better known as Amparo Ochoa, was a Mexican singer-songwriter. She was one of several other Mexican artists who emerged in the 1960s belonging to a genre known as "Nueva canción". Ochoa was born in 1946 in the Mexican state of Sinaloa. Before becoming involved in music, Ochoa served as an elementary school teacher. She became heavily involved in songwriting beginning in 1962, and her career took off when she won a contest in her native state with the song "Hermosísimo Lucero". In 1969, she moved to Mexico City to attend a music school. Shortly after, she released her first album "De la mano del viento".
Ochoa is best known for writing songs with strong messages against social injustice as well songs about Mexican history and culture. Most of her lyrics focus on poverty, indigenous rights, and women's rights.

Besides the Latin American artists, this album contains also a version of the "Lied der Moorsoldaten", sung in German language by Hermann and Inge. Does anybody know more about these artists?
