100 years after Violeta’s birth on October 4th, 1917, we celebrate her extensive musical compositions and ethnomusicological breakthroughs. Violeta’s Gracias a la vida is a fixture in the Latin American imagination, a song heard around the world. This year the world has joined our festivities with 100 years of Violeta echoed in Spain, Finland, Mexico, France and Greece, among many other places. Hence, the Bay Area welcomes 100 Blossoms for Violeta Parra, a festival of music and dance by local bands and Inti-Illimani as our special guest direct from Chile. This event offers a multi-generational interpretation of Violeta’s music.
