#Quote
1When you are in exile, you take your suitcase, but there are things that don't fit. There are things in your mind, like colors and smells and childhood attitudes, and there is also the pain and the death you saw.
2Artists are not political leaders. The only power they have is to draw people into the theater.
#Fact
1She was of mixed Amerindian and French ancestry. She grew up in a relatively desolate area, closer to Bolivia than to Buenos Aires.
2She won a local radio station's amateur talent contest when she was 15.
3Her signature song, "Gracias a la Vida" (Thanks to Life) was written by Chilean songwriter Violeta Parra.
4She performed with various entertainers, including Joan Baez and Sting.
5She was a leading figure in the "nueva cancion" musical movement of the 1960s and 1970s, which blended traditional folk music with politically-charged lyrics about government brutality and the poor.
6In 1992 she was honored as "Ciudadano Ilustre de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires" ("Illustrious Citizen of the City of Buenos Aires").
