Pre-gig practice of "I Thought I Heard Sweet Victor, Singing", the song that came to me
in Joan and Victor's garden in Santiago. Wonderfully, Alejandro loved it.
Here's a wonderful video of Alejandro talking about his time singing with Victor:
Here's Tony and me with Chilean friends,
working out a recording of "I Thought I Heard Sweet Victor":
The Chilean 'choir' was composed of torture survivors/relatives of 'disappeared' people.
Recorded in the heart of the Victor Jara Foundation in Santiago, November 2013
By film-maker and friend, Malcolm Boorer.
Just how lucky can one old relic get?
