I have eben following nueva trova artists (and new song etc) in Spain and South America since I worked in Chile in 1971-3 – and have been privileged to meet, work with and interview many musicians – I first met Pablo Milanes and Silvio Rodriguez in Cuba in 1978 – in an interview with Milanes in Cuba in 1999 he told me he wrote ‘Yo pisare las calles nuevamente’ in 20 minutes after hearing on a lunchtime news bulletin of the death of Chilean MIR leader Miguel Enriquez in a shoot out with the military in a Santiago neighbourhood after two years of suriving in clandestinity (1975). Milanes and Rodrgiez had been in Chile working with new song musicians like Victor Jara in 1971/2
