National Song - 2005


There are songs that leave their mark. Songs that become classics of a culture. That is what the program Canción Nacional wanted to reflect during November 2005 and January 2006. The program wanted to reflect those songs of national authors and performers that everyone can hum. Hosted by singer Javiera Parra, the program delved into the history of the classics of Chilean Romantic, Tropical, Popular, Rock, Folklore and Cueca music. Each chapter showed the stories behind these songs that were relevant at different times in the history of the Chilean music scene. This seven-chapter documentary series featured the participation of more than 50 musicians of the stature of José Alfredo Fuentes, Luis Jara, Los Tres, Miriam Hernández and Palmenia Pizarro, among others. The project of Canal 13's Bicentennial Area and the production company La Familia, was directed by Carlos Moena and was well received by the public and its peers, being nominated for the Altazor award in 2006.
