El Huracán

In order to celebrate the music of Bob Dylan, who has won the 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature, Transparent Language has published a video of María José Cantilo’s  1984 version of El Huracán, which Dylan wrote with Jacques Levy in the 1970’s. This protest song concerns the trial and conviction of murder of middleweight boxer Rubin Hurricane Carter. The Transparent Language blog post has the lyrics to the song in both Spanish and English.
