Manifiesto was the ninth solo studio album from Chilean songwriter Víctor Jara, it was edited after his death, using as a base the songs written for the album Tiempos que cambian (Times that change), that was left unfinished.

In the album participates the Chilean group Inti Illimani and the Chilean musician Patricio Castillo.[1] Patricio Castillo belonged, until 1971, to Quilapayún another famous Chilean band, later on it re-entered to the group, in a definitive way, several years later. Most of the songs were composed by Víctor Jara, with the exception of «Aquí me quedo» (Here I stay), composed with Patricio Castillo.

Versions[edit]

This album has several editions, with different covers, name changes and addition of songs. The original cover of Tiempos que cambian (Times that change), included a photograph of Víctor Jara in black and white, in profile, looking to the right.[2] That image was later used in 2001, by WEA Chile, for the edition of the Antología musical (Musical anthology).
