In this performance Cecilia Vicuña invites women sound artists to improvise along with her, a water song. Chile privatized water so rivers are drying up, or being contaminated. Mining companies and industrial agriculture divert and pollute the water and then release it back.
In Cantos del Agua we sing for water to hear our prayer, and for Chile to return water rights to the people.
