1. Raul Sendic:¬†founder of the Uruguayan Tupamaros, who built a really-cute-and-not-creepy-and-I-mean-that-in-the-least-sarcastic-way-possible cult of personality around him during the late 60s through the 70s. He would later become Irish and build a cookie factory in a tree, or—in the competing account—adorn red pants and organize the resistance to Gargamel.


  2. Cantares del Calabozo - Plan y Fantasia [Uruguay, 1970s]

    "Al fin como al principio todo es plan y fantasia."

    Just a quick one for you all, this is a song that comes out of Uruguay’s Tupamaro guerrilla movement of the 60s/70s. It appeared on the 1990(?) album Para Cantarle al Hombre: Homenaje a Raul Sendic, Sendic having been the founder of the MLN Tupamaros and a figure of veneration for the movement.

    The audio quality is pretty bad, since this was recorded in less-than-ideal circumstances, but it’s still worth a listen!
