Aurora Lopez Cancino

"I was born in Valparaíso, Chile, and started writing and singing in my head very early in my life to escape the tribulations and an internal sadness that exploded the day of the military coup on September 11, 1973. That day I was 13 and terrified. We survived 15 months of dictatorship and left the country. We lived in Japan for four years, and since then I have lived also in Europe, North America, Oceania, and Antarctica, weaving into my cultural tissue the nuances and contradictions of other landscapes and people. My ultimate dream is to grow old in a warm kitchen, a good drink in everyone's hands, sharing memories, stories, songs, and dances. Nobody alone, everyone real and connected."
