AllMusic Review by

Argentinean singer and civil rights activist Mercedes Sosa has enjoyed a long and storied career as one of the major proponents of the "nuevo cancion" movement. This collection gathers some of her most touching, pro-humanity songs. Backed with mostly minimal accompaniment, she wraps her rich, affecting vocals around the traditional Cuban lullaby (but famously adapted by fellow Argentine Atahualpa Yupanqui) "Duerme Negrito," "Sera Posible El Sur" (from the album and documentary of the same name), and the stirring "Corazon De Estudiante," with its indelible melody.
