a person from a country called chile. Duh pronounced Chileno in spanish. No matter what the guy above me says Chileans have good taste in music gennerally better taste than the average latino cuz the average puerto rican or cuban or anybody from central america likes only music that they can dance too and thats cool its traditional for them. Chileans like all kinds of music even if its obscure or popular.Many great bands reside in Chile Los jaivas a great folk/progressive band ,Los tres a great folk/rock/jazz band , then theres other good band like Chancho en piedra,Los bunckers, and cinergia a band that sounds like the incubus S.C.I.E.N.C.E album but instead of brandon singing its a comedian rapping about everyday stuff . As for all the argentinian stuff the guy above was talking about he totally exagerated there are many good if not great or in some cases bad(Miranda) argentinian bands infact the scene is huge but not enough to flood chilean radio. The person who wrote the article above must of listened to the radio once a week or maybe once a month thats the only way i can explain cuz i was there the same time he was . As for all the dictatorship thing, well the only thing i got to say is that chilean ppl dont know how to fallow orders cuz that dictatorship was dissolved ya it took 30 yrs to take pinochet out of his throne but the chileans did it not like other countries who needed help ,another point i can make is that if anybody goes to chile now or watches the news in chile youll see that there are alot of demonstrations that often turn into riots that are about downsizing, school system busspasses which then turned into a country wide "injustices in the school system" riot.
As for the spanish the guy above was talking about...i dont know what traditional spanish is but spanish from spain(the spanish i assume he knows) is just as complicated and has not as much slang but also has other languages(catalan,valenciano) incorporated into it . Spanish in spain is just as complicated And i bet he doesnt even know that being the average latino that he is only listening to mexican mainstream music dancing to merengue at the bars here in north america. Thinking that chileans have the same taste as him when they dont. obviously being shocked by this fact he decided to write a definition completely cutting chileans up .I felt like i had to go clear the air.
