Nicasio Luna

This post is for my Chilean friend Ariel. Thank you

Nicasio Luna is a Chilean gaucho; a young troubadour and minstrel of Patagonia, who sings to the tradition of his land, culture and people.
From the town of Cochrane, at just 18 years old Nicasio Luna stood out for his wide domain of verse and the strength of his voice, his music supporting causes like a Patagonia without [hydro-electric] dams and the conditions of the Mapuche, in poetic and challenging language.
To the sound of the milonga, Nicasio sings with love, tenderness and humor. "In life you have to make a mark, this is why I chose this music, and why I write my own poetry and songs".
