Cantos Cautivos (Captive Songs) is a digital archive that compiles memories of individual and collective musical experiences in centres for political detention and torture in Chile under Pinochet. This participatory project seeks to contribute to the historical memory of the dictatorship and to ongoing debates and research on human rights violations in other historical and geographical contexts.

Songs were present in political detention centres during the Chilean dictatorship. Together with victims’ remembrances, they are important fragments in the lives of those who have resisted, fought and shared their stories.
