This CD single should come back from the printers in about 10 days. I can’t wait to rack it and stuff.
Please enjoy this music video in the meantime.
The song is Chiapaneca and it’s a tone poem. Read along the first or second time you hear this song and you should be able to envision it.
It is December 22, 1997. A paramilitary group called “Paz y Justicia” rapes and murders dozens of women and children at a prayer meeting in Acteal, Chenalho, Chiapas. One paramilitary chooses to leave. He picks up a little girl, Marcela saving her from harm. But later he is found out in the act of helping her escape to the neighboring village and they hang him after much torture. Aggressively they search for little Marcela but give up after a time. There are other witnesses they weren’t able to kill. Undetected, a young guitarist sits in the bushes; waiting for them to leave. He remembers everything he has seen.
