“Pablo writes. Violeta sings. It is time to enjoy

Pablo Neruda was a pseudonym who made him famous in the world, but his original name was Ricardo Eliecer Neftali Reyes Basoalto, the Chilean poet who was awarded with the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1971, and who welcomes the guests today. His verses gathered and perpetuated national identity.

Neruda usually threw parties with music and poetry honouring good food. His odes to ingredients, preparations and traditional stews were described in many of these social gatherings.

It is one of the most important folklorists of The Americas, as well as a singer, sculptor, ceramicist and a skilled artist in embroidery. The music of Violeta Parra went around the world. She used to teach how to play guitar, prepared the wine, stirred the fire and sang for the audience.

Violeta also sang to good food and family about what is shared on the table. Caring and inviting, she stirred and served her knowledge in a tent she set up to celebrate music. Today, she celebrates with you.
