Atahualpa Yupanqui, an interview

Unfortunately, I was no longer able to interview Atahualpa Yupanqui, this wonderful Argentine singer-songwriter who is so poetic and at the same time so political. I heard one of his last concerts in March 1992 at the Volkshaus in Zurich. He was already so weak that someone escorted him to his chair and handed him the guitar.

Atahualpa Yupanqui died a few weeks later, at the age of 84, in Nimes, at an award ceremony. He is buried in the garden of his house in Cerro Colorado, Córdoba Province, Argentina. Fortunately we have found an interview that a Spanish colleague conducted in the 90s with Atahualpa Yupanqui.
