Inti-Illimani has transcended our idea of the musical ensemble and has become a cultural location, a liturgy expressing the essence of the Latin American ethno-musical experience. Founded by Jorge Coulón in 1967, for fifty years Inti-Illimani has performed worldwide before hundreds of thousands of fans, collaborated with folk legends, earned awards and honors for the group’s activism and masterful musicianship, and produced one of the richest discographies in Latin American recording history. Indeed, Inti-Illimani’s premier album, Nueva Canción, or “new song,” spoke to the ensemble’s role in dreaming a new vision for Chile during the volatile sociopolitical landscape of South America in the 1960s and 1970s. They have endured political exile, embodied creative leadership through decades of transition and evolution, and enjoyed an invaluable, truly majestic career.
