Gracias, Mercedes Sosa

Mercedes Sosa (9 July 1935 – 4 October 2009)


  1. Glad you like it, Claudia.
    One ought to be careful when comparing. Still, I think what Myriam Makeba was for South Africa, in a way Mercedes Sosa was for the Argentinians, especially in times of the military junta.

  2. Music is beautiful no matter its' source!
    Thanks for the link to Mr. Egg; I have copied his article on ART in order to peruse at my leisure.
    Still working on the definition -- but not sure it necessarily involves monetary value as some have suggested.
    Peace mon ami

  3. Ah, Goatman,
    welcome to Omnium.
    Very glad you will read his article, and I am (almost) sure you will not regret.
    The Doubtful Egg is undoubtedly a remarkable artist and blogger.
    All the best on your quest to find the definition.

    I'll let you know in case I have an idea.

  4. This is wonderful Sean. Just what I wanted right now.

  5. Just learning now about this great artist and lady. Didn't know she had just died. Your gracias and presentation were very appropriate, Sean. As always.

  6. I didn't realise either that she had died. RIP

  7. Claudia, Jams,
    sorry. I did not mention her death as I thought visitors would anyway know about.

    Glad you enjoyed the song.
