This is a coherent, lucid, authentic and well researched account of the life of Mercedes Sosa, the Argentinian folk singer. This is the first book written in Englsh and is backed by an extensive bibliography and reference library of YouTube videos.
It describes the poverty that Sosa was born into, how she suffered from stage fright for most of her life and how she became famous at the age of 15 at the Cosquin Folk Festival which marked the beginning of her musical career. Her music was alwa

When the Argentinian singer Mercedes Sosa died in October 2009 she was widely mourned in Israel.

She had performed with artistes like David Broza; appeared at the tenth anniversary celebration of the Peres Centre for Peace and with her compatriot and fellow singer, Teresa Parodi planted a tree in the Mamoriah Forest near the Ben Shemen Moshav. So it’s no wonder that when Parodi re-visited Israel soon after Sosa’s death, she planted another tree in her friend’s memory. It was the closi
