Rafael Manriquez is a renowned musician and songwriter from Santiago, Chile. His music is inspired by great Chilean folk singers such as Violeta Parra and Victor Jara. Like them, his lyrics reflect the struggles of his people in their desire for peace. The music movement nueva canción, or "new song," began in Chile during the 1960s. At that time, the country was in a state of political upheaval. Folk singers such as Violeta Parra and Mercedes Sosa took native instruments and traditional lyrics, and updated them to address the current times. Rafael Manriquez carries on that tradition.
