By the 1970s, national artists such as Atahualpa Yupanqui and Mercedes Sosa spearheaded Argentina’s new song movement (referred to as nuevo cancionero in Argentina) with cries for peace and justice among oppressed peoples in Latin America, and joined other artists in an international expression of solidarity. The musical backdrop of this movement encompassed the richness of national forms such as the zamba, the milonga and the chacarera as well as neighboring forms including the Cuban canción and the Peruvian marinera.

Perhaps the most significant musical vehicle for the nueva canción movement was the rich tradition of Andean music. Together with its Chilean neighbor, Argentina would introduce international audiences to this ancient musical genre through the modern expression of Latin America’s new-song movement. —Rebeca Mauleon
