    OSCAR CHAVEZ - A SALVADOR ALLENDE [MEXICO, 1974]

    Allende el rico, Allende el pobre
    tu regresarás dentro del cobre!

    This is a really cool (and short, only 2:00) song by famed Mexican trovador Oscar Chavez, dedicated to the late, then-recently-deposed Chilean President Salvador Allende (pictured). This comes from an album featuring leftist Mexican singers showing solidarity with the Chilean people, including a song by Amparo Ochoa, who I have previously featured on this blog. Download the album here.

    Oscar Chavez is known for his sharp political critique of the corruption and nepotism in the then-ruling PRI (Institutional Revolutionary Party), as well as his often humorous lyrics that poke fun at the idiosyncrasies of Mexican politics. He is not particularly well known for his voice, though it’s still worth a listen for the lyrical content in which he speaks of Allende as being resurrected among the people in various ways. Any questions or comments definitely let me know, and you can check out some previous episodes of this series here. Enjoy!

    LYRICS:

    Compañero Salvador
    Allende el niño, Allende el hombre
    tú regresarás en cada nombre
    de pena en pena en pena
    de uno en uno en dos
    ha de vivir tu voz, patria chilena

    Allende el mar, Allende el tiempo
    tú regresarás, corazón del pueblo
    en ala de canción ha de volar tu voz
    en bala de cañón de uno en uno en dos

    Allende el cielo, Allende tierra
    tú regresarás, varonía chilena
    hermano hermano hermano de uno en uno en dos
    ha de correr tu voz de americano

    Tú te salvas Salvador

    Allende el fuego, Allende el viento
    tú regresarás, tú nunca has muerto
    de cabeza en cabeza de uno en uno en dos
    ha de volver tu voz y tu entereza

    Allende el niño, Allende el hombre
    tú regresarás en cada nombre
    de pena en pena en pena de uno en uno en dos
    ha de vivir tu voz, patria chilena

    Allende el rico, Allende el pobre
    tú regresarás dentro del cobre

    Recordando al compañero Salvador en este aniversario triste. Ni olvido, ni perdón! Muerte al imperialismo yanqui!
