Celebrating the life and music of Victor Jara

About Celebrating the life and music of Victor Jara

The Chilean singer Victor Jara became a worldwide symbol of social justice and freedom after he was murdered in the CIA-backed military coup of 1973. This September marks Jara’s 87th birthday and also the 46th anniversary of his assassination. As a celebration of his life and music, Red Trio and special guests come together to sing a selection of his most beautiful and relevant songs.

Red Trio is a band based in Edinburgh formed by Eileen Karmy (flute, cuatro, and vocals), José Rojas (percussion, vocals) and Martín Farías (electric guitar, vocals) who play a repertoire of Latin American folk songs in refreshing arrangements.

Tickets FREE, booking encouraged :)

Concert starts at 7 pm, doors open at 6.45pm

Funded by Alistair Hulett Memorial Trust

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Celebrating the life and music of Victor Jara are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
