Isabel Parra - Volumen 2 (1968)


Daughter of South-American legend Violeta Parra, Isabel Parra learned to sing and play at an early age. "Music was a language fluently spoken at home", she says.  In 1965, with the help of brother Angel Parra, she founded the very renowned "Peña de los Parra" - artistic center and "Art Lab" where started musical movement "la Nueva Cancion Chilena" (New Chilean Song). Here, in the center of old Santiago, chilean icon Victor Jara (a young comedian and theatre director in those days !) took a guitar and started to sing traditional and original songs.

Isabel Parra worked and performed with Victor Jara, Luis Advis and Quilapayun. Her first albums featured ballads drawn from South American sources, but as she traveled and grew older, so the artist became increasingly identified with the protest movement. "I've always used traditional rhythms and melodies. But I've handled them roughly and rearranged them into a new musical form. It was my concept of creativity".
An impressive appearance at the 1972 Festival de la Canción de Agua Dulce (Lima, Peru) followed the singer's early performances and established Isabel Parra as a vibrant interpreter of traditional material. She won the first price with her song "La hormiga vecina".
Isabel Parra is one of the most exponents of Latin american folk song. She was exiled from Chile after the 1973 military coup and made many world tours as a messenger of Chilean politics and songs. She has now returned to Chile and is regarded as both guardian and developer of the Chilean folk movement. She continues to speak and sing for peaceful solutions to violence in Latin America.
