Work Like Chávez

“Check out the latest track from Rebel Diaz, a tribute to the recently-deceased Venezuelan President, Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías, perhaps the most important political leader of our generation. . . .  The intro sample is from legendary Venezuelan musician and activist, Alí Primera.  The words translate as ‘Those who die for life cannot be called dead.  From this moment on, mourning is prohibited.’  The sample in the main beat is from Simón Díaz, one of the most important figures in Venezuelan folk music.” — Carlos Martinez AKA Agent of Change
