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.
