Written by León Gieco and recorded by Sosa and Gieco in l984, this is a song that reflects well "the voice of the voiceless ones" as she was referred to. Also known as "La Negra" (for her Diaguitan origin), Sosa performed Argentine music/folk songs, Brazilian and Cuban music as well as a tribute to Chilean poet Violeta Parra in 1971. That song, Gracias a la vida, was to become one of her signature songs.
Here, Sosa addresses the horrors of terror and war as they affect the people, the innocents, the inheritants of injustice. Throughout her career, Sosa was a social activist receiving many acknowledgements for her contributions to the fight for justice and human rights.
English translation of lyrics included.
