From Tierra del Fuego to the Rio Grande, musicians are lending their voices to dynamic political movements. This program features several defiant artists in performances that are interwoven with social commentary on displaced or disadvantaged communities. Mexican-American Lila Downs sings songs of turmoil at the U.S. border. Anibal and Charly, from the group Santa Revuelta, take us inside the Argentine monetary crisis. Brazilian songwriter Chico Cesar has taken up the cause of landless peasants. With the vallenato of Oyeme Choco, members of an Afro-Colombian community sing of the military operations that drove them off their land. Through their music, these groups take viewers inside major grassroots movements shaping the Americas of today.
