When socialist Salvador Allende won Chile’s presidential election in 1970, a powerful cultural movement accompanied him to power. As the CIA actively funded opposition against Allende, the New Chilean Song Movement rose to prominence, persuading voters with its music. Victor Jara became an icon in Chile and beyond for his revolutionary lyrics and life. A short cultural history, “Venceremos” charts the movement from Allende’s victorious campaign to the brutal U.S.-backed military coup in 1973, which overthrew Allende and imposed Dictator Augusto Pinochet.
