Plot Summary: "Mercedes Sosa: The Voice of Latin America" covers the more than 50-year career of Argentina's most famous musical artist. Sosa sold millions of records, performed thousands of concerts all over the world, and left behind an indelible legacy. Here was an artist whose work and life went beyond the borders of music to become one of the most influential -- and loved -- personalities of the 20th century.
This intimate documentary reveals Sosa's early life and her rise to worldwide stardom, and explores the impact she had on music and politics.
Born in San Miguel de Tucuman, Argentina Mercedes Sosa was the daughter of a day laborer and a washerwoman. Sosa's humble roots influenced her music, and her courage made her a leader against the dictators of Latin America during the 1960's and '70s.
