“Gabriel San Román provides a
thoughtful and comprehensive overview of the New Chilean Song Movement.
Chile’s music of the 1960s and early 1970s was not only a milestone in
Latin American popular culture, its importance transcended the strictly
artistic to assume social and political significance. San Román
insightfully interweaves the music’s artistic development with Chile’s
tumultuous history of those years.“
—James Brennan, professor and chair of history, University of California, Riverside
