The New Song Movement
In the early 1960s, musicians, intellectuals, and students with a hunger for something of their own began to play music in the folkloric style of their country. Borrowing and combining instruments and forms from all over Latin America, they created a musical movement known as La Nueva Cancion or New Song. Their songs were poetry and social commitment set to the traditional music of Latin America, and they sparked a popular movement of social change. Los Angeles-based band Huayucaltia guides you through the music, instruments and history of this movement.
