Violeta Parra was born into a family of artists and musicians and spent her early years traveling and performing with her parents and siblings. She later studied music and painting in Santiago, Chile, and began to experiment with traditional Chilean folk music, incorporating it into her performances and compositions.

As a pioneer of the Nueva canción movement, Parra's music reflected the struggles and social issues facing the people of Chile and Latin America. She became a voice for the oppressed and marginalized, using music and art to raise awareness and promote social justice.

In addition to her music, Parra was also an accomplished visual artist, known for her tapestries, ceramics, and other works. Her art often featured themes of Chilean folklore and indigenous culture.

Tragically, Parra committed suicide in 1967, at the age of 49, leaving behind a legacy as one of the most important figures in Latin American music and art. Her songs continue to be performed and celebrated around the world, and her influence on the Nueva canción movement can still be felt today.
