A song that will never shut up

Mercedes Sosa is considered the greatest exponent of Argentine folklore.


Sometimes fate marks us from the day we are born. Will it be by chance that one of the most representative voices in our country has arrived in the world precisely on the day of the fatherland? Destiny or coincidence, the truth is that on July 9, 1935, was born in   Tucumán   one of the voices that have touched the Argentines throughout the years:  Mercedes Sosa .

The voice of  La Negra  was not only a prodigy and a pride of  folklore  : it was a  song  of struggle, dignity, strength. His  songs  gave word to the native peoples, gave women a space, dignified the workers and appreciated the simplicity of a child. His voice generated a collective cry for justice and freedom, which is still heard today.

His music will always continue to play in the hearts of all Argentines.
