The Argentine folk singer, Mercedes Sosa, was a world-class performer, whose influence went far beyond the borders of music. Nicknamed, "The Voice of the Voiceless", Sosa used her voice to transmit the strength and fire needed for cultural and personal change. For decades, Sosa was a dynamic force in shaping Latin America.
Mercedes Sosa - The Voice of Hope is a history lesson, a touching tribute, and a triumphant memoir all in one. It shows the power of art to transcend cultural differences and to unite us in what is most human.
The first part of the book chronicles Sosa's spiritual, political, and artistic journey and offers a psychological profile that displays insights into the artist's character and actions. Danish author, Anette Christensen paints a portrait that incorporates the colors of despair, triumph, love, fear, and all the other human emotions that define a life, - in this case, the life of one of the greatest contemporary artists in Latin America.
In the second part Christensen captures the restorative impact of compassion and affection and frames the understanding of how connecting with Sosa and Sosa's music helped her overcome her own illness and emotional traumas. It is a brave offering from Christensen, authentic and at times vulnerable.
Through principles from interpersonal neurobiology, Christensen shows how relationships and connection have the power to heal and how music and mindfulness can help rewire the brain. By doing so, Christensen has developed a useful and an applicable roadmap to recovery for anyone who struggles with a painful past. This narrative calls out for the best in all of us. It empowers us to be ourselves and to overcome life challenges.
Over almost 10 years Christensen undertook more than 7000 hours of research. This included watching documentaries, reading articles, listening to songs and communicating with Sosa's family and friends and others who met her in person. Today she is a recognized Mercedes Sosa ambassador throughout the world.
