That Chilean songwriter was born in San Ignacio (Chilean province of Ñuble, Bío Bío Region) on a day at the end of September 1932. Luís Sepúlveda was his friend, and about him he said: “Sometimes when your voice fills my room or when I clean up old records, one of my children asks who sings, and the answer is always the same. This man who sings is my brother, and in each of my caresses there are also his hands.” And humanity was the most obvious trait of his personality. His songs talked about the love and life of humble people, but also about civil engagement. Son of a poor family, he attended the theater school in Santiago, also interested in popular music. About himself, he said: “I have come to know the wind syllables, the beautiful and natural poetry of life.” His songs have been made known to all over the world, by the Inti Illimani and many other musicians. Victor Jara has linked his personal destiny to that of his people. It was September 11, 1973, when he was arrested and then killed after torture. After killing him, the military had also forbidden the sale of his records. https://matadornetwork.com/change/chile-inaugurates-museum-of-memory-human-rights/
I REMEMBER YOU, AMANDA – I remember you Amanda. The wet street running, to the factory where Manuel worked. The wide smile, the rain in your hair, nothing mattered, you were going to meet with him. They were five minutes, life is eternal in five minutes. The whistle blew to return to work, and you walking you lit up everything. Those five minutes made you blossom. I remember you, Amanda. The wet street running to the factory where Manuel worked. The wide smile, the rain in your hair, nothing mattered you were going to meet with him. And he took to the mountains to fight. He had never hurt a fly, and in five minutes it was all wiped out. The whistle blew to return to work many didn’t go back neither did Manuel. I remember you, Amanda. The wet street running to the factory where Manuel worked.
