Identité(s) et mémoire(s) dans la Cantata popular Santa María de Iquique

Olga Lobo


The Cantata popular de Santa María de Iquique is one of the most important musical compositions of Quilapayún. Composed by Luis Advis in 1969 it tells the story of the massacre of the Iquique mineworkers in 1907. This cantata popular has become not only one of the symbols of the protest songs from the Seventies but also an icon for the universal struggle against injustice. The aim of this article is to study its history and different meanings in order to show the way how poetry, lyrics and music come together to tell the identities and memories of the Chilean people until now, when we celebrate its 50th anniversary.
