Emile Sole / Atahualpa Yupanqui
S/SSAA / a cappella
In this lullaby compiled by Atahualpa Yupanqui, one of the most popular Latin American composers of the 1960s and 1970s, the little child is given imposiible promises and warned of dire consequences, while the sad plight of the sick, hard-working mother is depicted in word and song.
