Facundo Cabral - From the Series: A Fondo—In Their Own Words (53:37)
Description: Rodolfo Enrique Cabral (La Plata, Buenos Aires, 1937 - Guatemala, 2011), was a singer-songwriter, poet, writer and Argentine philosopher. He was characterized by his compositions of trova and his monologues with personal anecdotes, parables, social criticism to promote self-realization, the awakening of consciousness, and spiritual reflection. In 1970, he recorded No soy de aquí, no soy de allá (I am not from here nor am from there). During the last Argentine dictatorship (1976-1983), he was already considered a singer-songwriter of protest, forcing him to leave Argentina in 1976. He settled in Mexico, where he continued to compose and make presentations.
