Gabriela Montero, “ExPatria”. LIVE in Lugano, 2012

Published on Apr 23, 2013

Dedicated to the 19,336 official victims of homicide in 2011, “ExPatria” is Gabriela Montero’s compositional protest at the unacceptable murder rates in Venezuela today. A further 21,000 homicides were reported in 2012. Caracas is officially the world’s most deadly capital city. This is not a political statement, but a musical portrait of the current social and human crisis, and the systemic collapse of law and order.
