PINOCHET COBOS, Carla. Violeta Parra: Tensions and Transgressions in the Mid 20th Century of a Woman from the Popular World. Rev. music. chil. [online]. 2010, vol.64, n.213, pp.77-89. ISSN 0716-2790.

Violeta Parra's artistic work presents on different levels the complex problem of unraveling the social schemes of the first half of the twentieth century. This article examines the ways in which this "folclorista" moved through the gender schemes corresponding to men and women of that epoch. This movement opened a space for a both critical and irreverent view in which cultural tradition and innovation converge, both regarding the contents other texts as well as the expression of their musicality.

Keywords : Popular culture; gender; popular music.
