Cornelis sjunger Victor Jara: rätten till ett eget liv (English: Cornelis sings Victor Jara: The right to live in peace) was a music album recorded by the Swedish-Dutch folk singer-songwriter Cornelis Vreeswijk in 1978.[1]

History[edit]

Vreeswijk worked and travelled to Latin America in the late 1960s and early 1970s and developed a great appreciation for its rich musical heritage. He translated ten songs of Chilean trubadur Victor Jara and recorded both a Swedish and a Dutch album with translated songs.
