Closer of my painting Violeta Parra and the song "Thanks to Life "
I love the closers in the series of Violeta Parra. Each closer is a different paint itself.
" Thanks to the life – Gracias a la Vida" is a popular Chilean folk song composed and performed by singer Violeta Parra , one of the artists who laid the foundations of the artistic movement known as Nueva Canción Chilena . The song opens the album Latest compositions ( 1966 ), the last published by Violeta before his suicide , on 5 February 1967.
“Thanks to Life” has reared as one of the the greatest contradictions of the composer: Paradoxically, the author of a hymn of love for existence, committed suicide a year after writing it.
" Thanks to Life " is one of the best known and interpreted Chilean songs in the world , and permanently is included in anthologies of Latin American songs .
Gracias a la Vida was popularized throughout Latin America by Mercedes Sosa and later in the US by Joan Baez.
