Whoever said all is lost?

Can a song change the world?
This is the story of the anthems we can't stop singing, from "Bella Ciao" to Black Lives Matter as well as feminist music from around the world.
This cultural essay begins with the famous song Yo vengo a ofrecer mi corazón (I've come to offer my heart) by Fito Páez, which, thirty-five years on, feels just as relevant; the offspring of French chansons, folk music by Violeta Parra and Mercedes Sosa, hope-infused Cuban music, rock by Bob Dylan and the Beatles and the prolific creativity of Charly García and Spinetta.
It is also a choral memoir of a song and a period featuring accounts by Joan Manuel Serrat, Pablo Milanés, Eugenia León, Omara Portuondo, Liliana Herrero, Susana Baca, Sole Giménez, Wendy Guerra, Xavier Velasco and Pedro Mairal, among others.

‘Yo vengo a ofrecer mi corazón is part of the soundtrack of a period of hope and excitement, when we rediscovered our dreams and liberty.' Joan Manuel Serrat
