Who is Mercedes Sosa? The voice of Latin America...

I was introduced to her about 5 years ago, have a few of her CD's.
If you ever ate at Martin's restaurant he plays her quite a bit.

Very sad...but she gave so much,
if only I could express, or live one tenth of what she did.

Thank you to the life

Thank you to life which has given me so much,
it gave me two eyes and when I open them,
they perfectly distinguish the black from the white
and in the high sky her starry depth and among the masses,
a man that I love.

Thank you to life that has given me so much,
it gave me the hate that in all his spacious sound
night and day shackles and martyred canaries, turbines, bricks, showers,
and a voice so tender that Iím well loved

Thank you for the life that has given me so much,
it gave me sound and the alphabet with him,
the words that I think and declare mother, friend, brother and
the illuminating light the root of the soul that I am loving.

Thank you for the life that has given me so much,
it gave me the march with my tired feet with whom Iíve walked cities and puddles,
beaches and deserts, mountains and plains and to your house, your street and your patio.

Thank you for the life that has given me so much,
it gave me a heart that beats when I see the fruit of human brain,
when I see the good so far from the bad, when I see the depths of your clear eyes.

Thank you for the life that has given me so much,
it gave me the smile and gave me the cry so that I distinguish good fortune from despair
and the two things that make up my song and the song of all of you that
is the same song and the song of everyone that is my own song.

Thank you for the life, thank you for the life . . . .
