« These performances were divided in two parts, each lasting around 40 minutes. In one we presented the "Cantata of Santa María de Iquique", but that's another story.

There we’d accompany anyone who wanted to sing a song of their choice. But that, too, is another story. »

That afternoon of 11 September 1973, I was at school marking some music tests. After a while I heard a very loud bang on the door and went to open it at once. It was the police. »

« They immediately hit me when I pointed out that they were in a school. They showered me with insults and they demanded that I tell them who my workmates were who were not there at the time; I flatly refused to do so. Mrs María de Osan, who was the president of the parents' association, and the authority to give me instructions, said, "If he doesn’t want to speak, Captain, make him". »
