We invite you to enjoy the lesser-known music styles of the Creole cultures of Latin America with the multi-talented Chilean musicians of Santo Remedio! Livestream link: https://fb.me/e/1uewMT2j4
This livestream concert is also to support the struggle of the political prisoners in Chile. Many young Chilean citizens are in prison after protesting for a better economic, social and political system after the Social Revolt of October 2019. Thanks to those protest and the sacrifice of many Chileans, next Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 May there will be elections in Chile to select the members of the body that will draft a new constitution. That’s why we can’t forget our political prisoners. And we must not only honour them, but also help them financially.
With energetic rhythms, passionate vocals and a wide variety of sounds, Santo Remedio takes the listener on a journey of discovery through the South American continent. The sound of their music is characterized by the variety of instruments, all band members are multi-instrumentalists. Macarena Paz Pizarro is the lead singer with her powerful warm alto voice and plays cajon, bombo leguero and string instruments. Rodrigo Cortes plays guitar, cuatro and charrango, Eduardo Navea plays typical South American flutes such as quena and quenacho, string instruments and percussion, Alejandro Arrate plays bass guitar, piano and percussion instruments.

We invite you to participate in the discussion “Reflections on the plebiscite of October 25th with Gabriel Salazar. Has popular sovereignty been manifested?”
Participate through Zoom is this Thursday, October 29, at 3:00 p.m. Chile and 19 hrs. The Netherlands and Central Europe.
We want to reflect together with the Professor, National History Prize winner, Gabriel Salazar, on the historical antecedents that led to the plebiscite of October 25th, as an “institutional” solution to the social and political crisis, which has remained in evidence after the revolt of October 18th, 2019. And on the real options (or not) that are opened with its results, as a reflection of popular sovereignty, for the resolution of the problems of inequality, inequity, injustice and impunity (so urgent and rooted in our history). As well as, in the deep transformation of the State, towards one that guarantees respect for dignity, Human and social Rights, as well as the integral and autonomous development of people, peoples and communities.
