Nicólas Miquea is a politically active songwriter, poet and classic guitarrist from Chile. In Chile, he published in the literature magazine “Cabeza, manos, tronco y cuello”, he received a scholarship from the foundation “Pablo Neruda” and worked as a music teacher in the culture house “La Casa del Poeta” in Valparaiso. In 1999, Nicólas won the prize “Fondart” together with the group “Transciente” for the song “Los cinco minutos” which is dedicated to the famous Chilean musician Victor Jara. In Germany, Nicólas studied classic guitar at the School for Music and Theater in Rostock and the School for Music “Franz Liszt” in Weimar.
He puts his musical prowess to good use as he supports a variety of political events such as the “Palestine Solidarity Festival” in Berlin. Apart from his own songs, Nicólas interprets several Latin American classics, for example Violeta Para, Silvio Rodríguez, Mercedes Sosa.
The band Feierabend Poetic Cumbia was formed in June 2013. The members are from Chile and Argentina and are living in Berlin. In their songs, they unite their Latin American roots with influences from Berlin. They process their experiences as migrants and their rhythms vary between Pop, Ska, Cumbia, Tango, Cuarteto and Electro together with Spanish and German lyrics.
Unfortunately, the famous Swiss globalization critic, sociologist and internationalist Jean Ziegler had to withdraw his confirmation to speak at our conference as he will take part in a UN meeting at the end of october. Nevertheless, he wants to support our goal to enhance the internationalist cooperation between Europe and Latin America by agreeing to serve as patron of our conference.
Ziegler showed his solidarity with progressive political actors in many respects. In his book „Gegen die Welt“ (Against the Order of the World), he analyzed the chances and perspectives of liberation movements in Latin America and Africa in a critical-constructive fashion. In the last 15 years, Ziegler stressed the importance of Latin American left-wing governments in the struggle against the catastrophic consequences of neoliberalism and the respective achievements in the struggle against hunger.
