RhoDeo 1750 Roots


Today's artists are an instrumental and vocal Latin American folk music ensemble from Chile. The group was formed in 1967 by a group of university students and it acquired widespread popularity in Chile for their song Venceremos (We shall win!) which became the anthem of the Popular Unity government of Salvador Allende. During their exile in Europe their music took on a multifarious character, incorporating elements of European baroque and other traditional music forms to their rich and colourful Latin American rhythms - creating a distinctive fusion of modern world music. They are perhaps the best internationally known members of the nueva canción movement. .....N'Joy

For well over 30 years, Inti-Illimani (the name translates as "Sun God") has held a beacon for Chilean music, both the traditional folk styles and the more contemporary nueva cancion. Back in 1967 a group of students at Santiago's Technical University formed a band to perform folk music. Taking their name from the Aymaran Indian language of the Andes, they began playing traditional music -- something few did back then -- and quickly earned a reputation around the capital, becoming more and more adept on their instruments. By the '70s they'd grown into a political beast, taking on the nueva cancion (literally "new song") of many young groups, and being quite outspoken lyrically -- enough to be forced into exile in 1973, where they'd stay for 15 years. However, they refused to be cowed by the Chilean dictatorship. Basing themselves in Rome, Italy, they continued to record, and toured more heavily then ever before, earning a powerful reputation around the globe, and becoming very unofficial ambassadors of Chilean music, as well as opponents to the ruling regime. In addition to performing with a number of famous, political figures like Pete Seeger and Mikis Theodorakis, they were included on the famous 1988 Amnesty International Tour, along with Sting, Peter Gabriel, and Bruce Springsteen. It was, perhaps, their highest profile moment, at least in worldwide terms, and set the stage for their return to their homeland, where they've continued to be outspoken.

While they've remained a force in world music, their career in the U.S. was hampered by the lack of any consistent record deal until 1994, when they signed with Green Linnet offshoot Xenophile. Prior to that, only a few of their 30-plus discs made it into domestic U.S. record bins. The eight-piece lineup remained stable until 1996, when Max Berru decided to retire from music after almost three decades, shortly after the group had been celebrated with a Best Of disc in Italy (not to be confused with the 2000 Best Of on Xenophile, which collected tracks from their last four releases only). Instead of replacing him, they've continued since as a septet. 1997 saw the band honored with a U.C. Berkeley Human Rights Award for their labors in the past. Since then, although they've continued to release albums and tour, they've cut back on their earlier hectic schedule, but also widened their musical horizons, as 1999's Amar de Nuevo looked at the complete spectrum of Latin roots music and its Creole heritage.

In the past the group was musically led by Horacio Salinas and politically led by Jorge Coulon. However, in 2001 there was a controversial split of the group, which started when three key members left the group (José Seves, Horacio Durán and Horacio Salinas). They were replaced by Manuel Meriño (from Entrama), Cristián González and Juan Flores. Due to the importance of departed members, many called into question the ability of the remainder to carry on the Inti-Illimani name. Meanwhile, the three departed members started their own group they call Inti-Histórico. From 2005 there are two groups:

    Inti-Illimani New (Coulon brothers)
    Inti-Illimani Histórico (José Seves, Horacio Durán and Horacio Salinas)

Sing to the program is the fifth official studio album of the Chilean band Inti-Illimani, originally published in the year 1970. The album is a musicalization of the Government Program of Salvador Allende, made as a tribute to his triumph in the presidential campaign of the same year . Almost all of the lyrics on the album are written by Julio Rojas, who also wrote in Oratorio de los trabajadores in 1972, while the music was composed by Luis Advis and Sergio Ortega, using the cantata form.

On July 1, 2003, around multiple re-editions and remasters of Inti-Illimani's LP records, the Warner Music Chile label re-released this LP in CD format, including at the end the twelve tracks of the 1969 album Si Somos Americanos (If we were Americans) the first official studio album of the Chilean band Inti-Illimani, recorded in La Paz, Bolivia, 2 and published in 1969.

This was not the first album to be released by the Chilean folk group Inti-Illimani, which had originally formed while its members were college students more than six years before Viva Chile! came out in 1973. But it was the first of the group's albums to emerge from a new life as exiles in Rome; so, literally, this spirited music of revolution and rebellion was recorded within a short stroll from the type of hearty lunchtime pasta that is more likely to inspire a siesta. The decisive summarization of thoughts that sometimes occurs as a preamble to dreamland is a nice way to describe the choice of both repertoire and final program sequence. Viva Chile! lays bare the musical roots of this ensemble, in large part a style of folk music from the Andes that has unfortunately become a trifle stereotyped due to overexposure. In the case of Inti-Illimani, the growth from this original starting point has been lush, extending into a challenging form of expression known as nuevo cancion, or new song. Rich emotions and musical surprises bloom almost constantly from these pieces. In combination with politics, as in "Venceremos" or "Cueca de la C.U.T.," it becomes a garden that any lover of protest songs will want to sit in and meditate. Sniffing along while the military industrial complex is overthrown is hardly the only sweet bouquet provided, however. From the very start of the album, intricate and terrifically mixed percussion breaks provide some of the finest moments. "Cueca de la C.U.T." is simply amazing, sounding like small drunken men have invaded the speaker box with wooden mallets. Instrumental pieces involving various combinations of stringed instruments such as guitar, tiple, and charango are also part of the program, a style that the group seems to have downplayed in later releases. "Ramis," "Tatati," and "Subida" are short and simple treats; "Longuita" utilizes a picking style that sounds like country & western, though it is uncertain what country. "Venceremos" is the big vocal hit, an anthem among anthems, and as is typical in the effective sequencing, it is sandwiched between two of the instrumentals. As mentioned in passing, a distinct Andes style involving pan pipes, known as zampona and a certain kind of repetitive melody has been transformed from obscure ethnic music into ghastly kitsch courtesy of Paul Simon and "El Condor Pasa." This style is used somewhat heavily as this album begins, then passes away into a kind of distant mist as the program becomes more political. It is truly sad that someone else's recording career can so jeopardize the experience of understanding a beautiful musical concept, but that's showbiz. Some listeners will have to toil mightily, hefting aside pounds of prejudice and unfortunate indoctrination in order to truly understand what this group is all about. As hard as that is bound to be, it might be of some assistance to present the following image, complete with the caveat that it is presented only a short time after reading a flattering account of Simon's sure and knowing ways while collaborating in the studio with a bunch of vintage gospel entertainers. The traditional Indian music utilized by Inti-Illimani, whose name means Sun God in the Aymaran Indian language, is of a much finer vintage than those old Simon & Garfunkel records in the den. The zampona flutes and various drums and rattles, each carefully used to create maximum impact, have an individual and combined intensity, would be literally be described as muy grande in Spanish, that is really way too big for a Paul Simon record -- a giant, gleaming zampona being inserted in a place where the sun don't shine, where the Sun God never visited.

Inti Illimani achieved to keep the songs soul adding their musical skill. Just that simple. Violeta Parra is behind these songs. Victor Jara is behind these songs. Chile, Latin America are behind these songs. Because the collective unconscious of the human being is behind these songs. That is to say, a soul which gives voice to the universal psyche. Combative, present even in silence, and beautiful.
From the making again of "La partida" (why is it so landscape-ly inner?) till a musical extension of "Run run se fue pal norte", and one of the most significative recordings of "Corazón maldito", along with the reading of the lyrical beauty of "Lo que más quiero":

el árbol que yo más quiero
tiene dura la razón
me priva su fina sombra
bajo los rayos del sol.

Singing of Andean peoples, also called simply as Canto de pueblos andinos , is the eleventh studio album by the Chilean band Inti-Illimani . 3 It was originally released in 1975 by the Italian label Dischi dello Zodiaco , to be later reissued by other European record labels. This is the third studio album recorded and published by the band in Italy , after their exile in that country product of the 1973 coup d'état in Chile Listening to it is like entering into a magic world from a misty mountain pass.This "song of Andean peoples" is intended to show a small part of the extraordinary musical richness that are rooted in the Mediterranean heights of our South America; this music, that being a legacy of centuries will survive but on the other hand, poses a challenge to today 's generation of American musicians. The music of the Andean peoples is alive, current expression, as well as indigenous and popular manifestation as a source of inspiration and creation.

Firmly rooted in the cultural traditions of their Chilean homeland, the ensemble known as Inti-Illimani also came up in solidarity with politically outspoken musicians like Victor Jara and Quilapayún, artists whose anti-fascist songs and messages were made available to North American listeners on Monitor and Americanto LPs. Forced into exile by the 1973 U.S.-supported military coup during which Jara was mutilated and then murdered as democratically elected president Salvador Allende was literally machine-gunned out of office, Inti-Illimani relocated to Italy (following in the footsteps of their hero, the poet and statesman Pablo Neruda, who unfortunately died in Chile soon after Allende) and recommenced the recording of music that synthesizes ancient tradition, nueva cancion, and unflinching social commentary. Released in 2005, the first volume in Inti-Illimani's Antologia series samples their works dating from the first five years of exile (1973-1978), including material from their albums Vive Chile! (1973) and Resistencia (1977). This is beautiful and movingly sincere music, close to the authentic heart of historic Andean folk, and deeply informed by the social environment in which it originally gestated and came of age.
