Check out David Rovic's 2014 Musical Year-In-Review


David Rovics has been called the musical voice of the progressive movement in the US. Amy Goodman has called him "the musical version of Democracy Now!" And now in that vein, you can revist some of the biggest stories and tragedies of the year with insigtful critiques and cheeky analysis in song-form. Highlights include: On March 31st, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change releases a report on climate change, warning of its dangers to humanity, On October 11th there were mass protests throughout Europe against the TTIP and on December 9th, after five years of review, the Senate Intelligence Committee released a report on the CIA's use of "enhanced interrogation techniques" in the post-9/11 era.  It revealed that "CIA detainees were tortured."  Which we already knew.

Gabriel San Román Interview on Ghoulish Time speaking out Venceremos


When the socialist politician Salvador Allende dramatically won Chile’s presidential election in 1970, a powerful cultural movement accompanied him to power. Folk singers emerged at the forefront, proving that music could help forge the birth of a new society. As the CIA actively funded opposition media against Allende during his campaign, the New Chilean Song Movement rose to prominence, viscerally persuading voters with its music. Víctor Jara, a central protagonist at the time, became an icon in Chile, Latin America, and beyond for his revolutionary lyrics and life. Inti-Illimani, Quilapayún, and other musicians contributed by singing before audiences of workers outside factories or campesinos in Chile’s rural countryside.

A short cultural history, “Venceremos“ charts the development of the movement from the years before Allende’s victorious campaign to the brutal U.S.-backed military coup on September 11, 1973, that overthrew his presidency and imposed the dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet. Featuring interviews from key figures and lyrical analysis, “Venceremos“ gives insight into how the New Chilean Song Movement’s revolutionary anthems came to be.
