Fallece Mercedes Sosa y nos faltan palabras para describir nuestra tristeza. Few artists were so much a part of the soundtrack of our lives as Mercedes Sosa, who passed away last weekend: from her last CD, nominated to three Latin Grammys: PARAOdel primer volumen de dos, Cantora I y II, que serían los últimos discos de Mercedes Sosa (Foto courtesy of Victoria Bianco, from Mercedes Sosa´s last concert in Chicago in 2007) Here´s the link to the Chicago Public Radio segment which includes an interview of Mercedes that I had the privilege of interpreting. Aquí también el link del tributo en Chicago Public Radio, que incluye la interpretación que tuve el privilegio de aportar durante la entrevista.
