Chile's 9/11 (encore)

As the world observes the 7th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks in the U.S., few realize the dark significance of that day in Chilean history. Thirty-five years ago, on September 11th, 1973, a U.S. backed military junta toppled socialist president, Salvador Allende, marking the beginning of decades of oppression.

On this edition, correspondent Pauline Bartolone brings us the story of a group of Chilean exiles living in the U.S. They reflect on the coup and talk about how music transformed their experience of terror into artistic expression.

Featuring:  Hector Salgado, Chilean exile and musician/film maker; Quique Cruz, Chilean exile and musician/artist; Fernando "Feña" Torres, musician and organizer; Lichi Fuentes, musician.
