Music for a Sunday: One for all the guerrillas, past and present

This patriotic hymn was first associated with Fidel and Che’s victory in Cuba, but it’s since become incredibly popular with freedom-fighters all over Latin America. And no wonder. It’s a stirring one, isn’t it?

Guerrillas have been in the news a lot this week–from the much-trumpeted death of the FARC’s “Mono Jojoy” in Colombia, to the impending victory of Lula’s comrade, the kick-ass Dilma Rousseff, who’s about to become president of Brazil.

This song also figured on a recent campaign-trail edition of La Hojilla, as Venezuelans go to the polls today to keep the escuálidos from advancing. So I thought this would be only fitting to play for you today.

Guerrillero, guerrillero, adelante…
