Singer Karla Lara had just completed a tour of the US when she did this interview for community radio. She tells how she began singing at the age of 16 when she was invited to work with the Salvadoran guerilla band Cutumay Camones and how the New Song movement sweeping Latin America informed her political commitment and her life as an activist. Karla is touring to bring attention to the situation in Honduras where a regime that resulted from a coup last year is responsible for continuing gross human rights violations.
