Valentina and Voces del Sur

Daughter of Exile (Hija del exilio)

Daughter of exile (Hija del exilio)

This CD is part one of a series of two discs which deal with some of Valentina’s memories of exile. At the heart of this album is a poetic dialogue, in the form of progressive Latin American folk song, between singer Valentina and the child that she was when her family left Chile in 1977 to escape Pinochet’s military dictatorship. What does the little girl say to her future self? She whispers her dreams and favourite things … to be woven into song.
