Hi

Veinte Mundos is an online spanish magazine which you can subscribe to for free. the edition I received this week is much improved plus it will now be out monthly. this is the link

there is an interesting article about Violeta Parra plus a link to a youtube video of various latin stars singing Gracias a la vida as a charity song for the chile earthquake.

Interesting version of one of my favourite songs, but the best one for me is always Mercedes Sosa.

thankyou for your post Pippa. I always enjoy your posts which are knowledgeable, helpful and gracious. I particularly liked the link to Alfonsina at the time of Mercedes death. I had put another post on the subject under spanish music as I too am a fan of Mercedes and her music and it was for that reason I was interested in the article about Violetta. Youtube also has Mercedes singing Gracias a mi Vida with Joan Baez - she is clearly suffering infirmities and her voice is not quite as magical as her earlier recordings but her charisma and perfect phrasing are present.

Veinte Mundos is going to feature an article on music each month, so I hope to find other gems.
