5 stars Los Jaivas (an amazing group of South America) playing the songs of Violeta Parra (an amazing composer of South America), the whole album it's a tribute to VIoleta, and the songs included on it, have the touch of progressive that only Los Jaivas could to give. my favourite track is "El Guillatún", the version of Violeta Parra, is very quiet, and slow, with only acoustic arreglements (the style of the 60's south american music), but Los Jaivas make it too much long with electric instruments but without lose the andine style. and all the songs in the album have that combination. three years earlier, Los Jaivas have published "Alturas De Macchu Picchu" with the poems of the poet Pablo Neruda, that's an amazing album too, but i think "Obras de Violeta Parra" was the biggest work in the career of Los Jaivas.
