Viña Del Mar - La melodia del siglo XX (2010)

Post by Blanco »

In 2010, for the Viña del Mar International Festival a panel made a selection of 10 songs, "the songs of the twentieth century." After they were chosen, different bands and artists performed these songs at the festival, and then another jury chose the winning song, the most representative from the selection. It is important to say that the songs chosen, and the winner, are not related to his performance at the festival.
