Our second hour continues our sampling classic tracks from our featured album from Quilapayún, of which the title track ‘El pueblo unido jamás será vencido’, which started life as a March for then President Allende’s Popular Unity government, and after General Pinochet’s coup d’etat became the national anthem of the Chilean resistance, and then morphed in different languages and countries, recently ending up as the unofficial anthem of Ukraine’s Orange Revolution in 2004 !
