T'is a sad day.  She was hugely important in her time, helping -along 
with Atahualpa Yupanqui and Violeta Parra- inspire the whole Nueva 
Cancion movement, which came to be best exemplified by Victor Jara, 
Quilapayun, and Inti Illimani.

There are fewer and fewer composers and performers from that time still 
alive and active, and it is all rapidly fading into memory ...
