OSORIO FERNANDEZ, avier. Canto para una semilla: Luis Advis, Violeta Parra y la modernización de la música popular chilena. Rev. music. chil. [online]. 2006, vol.60, n.205, pp.34-43. ISSN 0716-2790.

This article is a study of the piece Canto para una semilla (Song for a Seed) by the Chilean composer Luis Advis (1972), primarily in its cultural and historical dimensions. The meaning of the work is sought in its interrelations with the problems and debates within the Chilean society of the 1960s and 1970s, which were related to the transformations brought about by modernization in Chile. This is mirrored in the poetic content of the décimas written by Violeta Parra, which constitute the dramatic support for Luis Advis's work. This is further related to the connections between art music and popular music which will later originate the Nueva Canción Chilena (New Chilean Song) this redefining the place of popular music in our society

Keywords : Luis Advis; Modernity; popular music.
