In September 2010 I went to a concert featuring Inti Illimani, Quilapayún and Los Tres, three very famous Chilean bands. I thoroughly enjoyed Inti Illimani and Quilapayún, but I pretty much hated Los Tres. Every song they played I wished it would be over soon.
Last week, when my boss told me we were going to take our students to the Municipal Theater to see a Ballet with live music by Los Tres, I was intrigued. What would a ballet be like with live rock music? On the other hand, I was less than excited about having to listen to Los Tres again.
However, I was pleasantly surprised. The ballet took place in a bar in Valparaíso, and even though the dancing could have been a bit tighter, it was cool to see ballet set to rock music. And I didn’t hate Los Tres this time. There were some songs that I didn’t love, but overall, I enjoyed it.
Los Tres played this song for one of the opening numbers when the characters were introduced. It’s called Amor Violento.
