LA SANTA CECILIA Celebrates South American Poetic Hymn With Their New Video ‘Volver a los 17’

in Music by

La Santa Cecilia continues the timely release of the individual visual performances from their highly-acclaimed new album  ‘AMAR Y VIVIR’.  In this new video, the Grammy-winning bilingual band enlists the support of son jarocho performance group Caña Dulce y Caña Brava to take us on a musical journey to the remote Andes mountains with their new interpretation of  ‘Volver a los 17’, a classic Chilean Folkloric hymn.

The Grammy winning band releases their heartfelt tribute ahead of Mercedes Sosa’s July 9th birthdate– when the song’s legendary signature performer would have turned 84– and the centennial celebration of songwriter Violeta Parra.

‘Volver a los 17’ is a beloved poem that highlights the value of youthful sentiment above reason, and describes the enthusiasm and positive effects of love.
