Violeta Parra was a Chilean singer and songwriter, poet, painter, embroiderer as well as a sculptor and ceramist. Her life and work inspired millions worldwide and Violeta is often referred to as the 'Mother' of the New Song Movement, the 1960's revival of Latin American folklore and music. With the lyrics often offering political criticism, this movement stood for the profound political and social struggles of the period.
2017 marked the centenary of Violeta Parra's birth. Victorina Press celebrated the centenary by organising a literary competition of short stories inspired by her life and artistic work. This volume contains a bilingual (Spanish-English) compilation of nine of the best stories from the contest.
