Next 23rd of March Jova Bagioli Reyes will explore the protest music and politics of Chile and perform key songs from Chilean history during a free, online event.
This event is made possible by the efforts of the School of Integration in Manchester UK, which is “a project initiated by activist and artist Tania Bruguera, highlighting the experiences of immigrants, critically questioning the terms ‘migrant’ and ‘integration’, inventing new terminologies and celebrating the power of human movement.”
As reported by Freemuse, positive news for artistic freedom are coming out of Chile. The feminist collective LAS TESIS have had their charges dropped by their local court. The Chilean Police force originally filed a legal complaint against the collective for their use of language in their music video ‘Manifesto Against Police’, which was a collaboration with Pussy Riot.
According to Freemuse “the Chilean Police Force–Carabineros de Chile–have denounced the feminist collective Las Tesis for alleged crimes of “attack on authority” and “threat”, after the collective published a video against police violence on 27 May on YouTube”.
