Chilean Folk Group Reunites with Mexico

By MP Mexico News Staff

Twenty-five years after their first visit to Mexico, the legendary Chilean folk group, Quilapayún, is hitting the stage at the Teatro Metropolitano on Thursday, July 3rd, at 7:30 p.m. Quilapayún is among the longest lasting and most influential exponents of the Nueva Canción Chilena (New Song) movement. Formed in Chile during the mid-1960s, the group became inseparable from the musical revolution that occurred during the government of Salvador Allende.

Emblematic of the collective memory of Latin America, Quilapayún represents the “search for freedom and the hope of justice and democracy.”
