Description

Since I was child I loved to hear stories that belong to an imaginary world in which native ancestral knowledge mixed with religious beliefs.  To this day Chile has a vast  intangible heritage. La Llorona, is one of those mythical beings. In fact, different versions are found throughout Latin America.  After the most recent earthquake ( Chile is a telluric country) which caused so much damage, I started this version of  "La llorona".
