Haiku and a Song – Mercedes Sosa – Gracias a la Vida October 6, 2009

Filed under: Haiku and a Song — texicana @ 10:15 pm

Mercedes  passed away on October 4, 2009.  She was a famous Argentinan folk singer who was internationally acclaimed as the “voice of the voiceless ones” whose criticism of South America’s military regimes led to her admiration by many.  Here I share my favorite song she sang, “Gracias a la Vida,” which means “Thanks to Life.” RIP Mercedes Sosa and thank you for many years of wonderful music!


Cantar es vivir.
Da gracias a la vida.
Canta tu verdad.
