Relaciones convenientes?

Aun se escuchan los ecos de su muerte. Nadie podria dudar de la calidad de su voz, pero ayer estaba pensando: despues de todo, ser de izquierda para ella, mas alla de sus convicciones, le permitio cantar como cantaba y “vender” lo que vendia. Su calidad de “objeto exotico” como diria Pinti, le abrio camino en Europa y en toda Latinoamerica. Volvio la democracia (en 1983) y no creo que le haya faltado dinero para vivir, al igual que a otros de su generacion como Leon Gieco o Victor Heredia. Hace un tiempo atras, aparecio en una revista las fortunas que cobraban por recitales “bancados” por el gobierno de los Kirchner (no justamente un ejemplo de transparencia) y finalmente, algo que le quedo muy mal, apoyo publicamente justamente a estos inescrupulosos que gobiernan la Argentina actualmente. Las ideas politicas, si no permiten distinguir al honesto del deshonesto, no sirven nada mas que para construir poder o para hacer dinero, como pareciera ser en este caso.

We still can hear the echos of her death. Nobody has any doubt about the quality of her voice, but yesterday, I was thinking: after all, being a leftist for her, and beyond her beliefs, was something that helped her to sing as she did and to “sell” what she sold. Her quality of “exotic object”, as Pinti would say, opened her Europe and Latin America. Democracy came back in 1983, and I do not think she had any problems of money after that, just as others of her generation: Leon Gieco or Victor Heredia. Some time ago, we learn that the y got lots of money from concerts “supported” by the Government of the Kirchners (not an example of transparency), and finally, something that I consider almos nasty, she supported these people who govern Argentina now. If political beliefs or ideas do not allow as to distinguish good from bad or honest from dishonest, are useless unless you look for money or power by itself.
