Lonquén (Petroglyph Records)

Lonquén is a tribute to the music of Victor Jara, the great Chilean folk singer murdered by Pinochet's regime in 1973. She opresents interesting new settings for his work, as well as pieces from the writings of Neruda. Composer and arranger Ancarola blends the folk sounds of South America with jazz and modern touches, singing in both Spanish and English. This is a truly unique work, and highly recommended

Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
