Viva Chile!


Jorge Coulon of the Inti Illimani has written to me from Chile. He is slightly furious with me for my post on Pinochet.
Jorge, I was joking. Iím a comic. I know all your songs by heart. I didnít know that youíve been in Chile for 18 years. I thought that you were still in Milano Marittima. Itís the fault of Italian TV that never updates its programmes. If you come back you are invited to lunch at my house. But without guitar. Forgive me if you can.
Long live Chile!

Iím Jorge Coulon of the Inti Illimani from Chile. Given the more than slightly xenophobic flavour of your joke about us, I want to tell you that since 1988, as soon as there was the possibility to return home, we did just that and since that moment we have been living in our own country. The reason we stayed in Italy was connected to the Pinochet dictatorship, and we recognise the hospitality of the Italians and we are sorry if the dictatorship lasted for longer than we would have imagined.
Anyway we went away 18 years ago and Iím sorry that the information you have about us is so fragmentary that it produces a joke worthy of Bossi more than of Beppe Grillo whom we learned to admire during our excessively long period of stay in Italy. Believe me I wouldnít have expected that from you.Ē
Jorge Coulon

Will you go to Beppe's house for dinner?

I think that's the best way to end this mishap; on top of that you don't see every day that somebody from Genova is offering something for free.....

He must really like you.
