Uruguay in Zitarrosa's Voice

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although I may disagree with the selection of songs for this "Grandes Éxitos" CD, still it is a sample of Zitarrosa's legacy to Uruguay musical landscape and to Latin American folklore. Perhaps the absence most yearned for in this compilation is "Adagio a mi país." It is very difficult for me to listen to Don Alfredo without getting emotional. He represents the dignified image of what a singer and songwriter should be for his co-nationals. His commitment to them, his solidarity with the underprivileged, his stance for social justice brought about his long exile during the Uruguayan military dictatorship. When he returned, he stopped by Buenos Aires to thank those who helped him during his exile and to show his deep appreciation for Argentina that was healing from a brutal military regime. Don Alfredo symbolized that musical brotherhood across the Río de la Plata. He knew that Latin American borders are in reality bridges. A few years after his return to Uruguay, Don Alfredo passed away to become another immortal Latin American troubadour, like Atahualpa Yupanqui, Violeta Parra, Alí Primera, Chabuca Granda, Víctor Jara."
