The new version of the traditional Pampilla de San Isidro welcomed renowned artists from the music scene on September 18th. The Vicuña folk group “Tierra Elquina” was responsible for opening fire on this third day to give way to all the romance of the official double of the Mexican singer Christian Nodal. Without a doubt, the most anticipated numbers of the evening were in the hands of the historic Chilean band Quilapayún, which ended to the rhythm of the kings of the tropical scene, Garras de Amor.
After his talk, Marcos Acosta, president of the folklore group Tierra Elquina, said: “I am excited. Thank you to the dancers for the show that we present today to our beloved community of Vicuña. It is difficult to do what we do and thank you to Mayor Rafael Vera for trusting this organization.”
58 years of experience
Quilapayún is known as part of the so-called Nueva Canción Chilena, which was founded in 1965. Quilapayún has established itself as one of the most important bands in our country because, among other things, they incorporated songs with social and political meaning into their lyrics. The most representative is the theme “The people united will never be defeated.”
For Eduardo Carrasco, one of the group’s founders, it is a great happiness to be in Vicuña and in Pampilla. “We feel a deep love for Gabriela Mistral, so it fills us with emotions to sing in this symbolic place, we are very happy.” Meanwhile, another of its members said that it is very important to have his work and his songs in one to be able to show such an important day for them. “We are here and happy to celebrate 58 years of our lives. It is also an extremely important year for us because it marks the 50th anniversary of the coup,” he said.
The interpreters of dance classics such as “Apasionados”, “Báilalo”, “Gotitas” and “Caprichito” were responsible for the rhythm and spice of this third evening. This is the first tropical romantic band Garras de Amor, an Argentine band founded by the Rodríguez brothers, who founded and founded their career in Chile at the beginning of 2000.
The singer and leader of the group, Diego Rodríguez, expressed his feelings when he found himself in a magical place like Vicuña. “I always liked Vicuña because of its history and the beautiful valley, but I didn’t have the opportunity to sing in a show like this. “I’m happy, I was shocked when I saw the stage and the audience, I’m having fun.”
And to conclude this new version of the Pampilla de San Isidro, on Tuesday September 19, the group Mazter Kumbia will perform on the central stage, opening fire alongside local talents together with the Terral Folkloric Group and Los Charros del Valle de Elqui, all the humor and mischief of Bombo Fica to end this dance party with the unmistakable sound of Los Vikings 5 .
