Translation and Multimedia Services in Oakland, California.

Here at CacaoRock we have been translating technical papers, accounting and financial texts, software, immigration certificates, adoption letters, books, movie scripts and official foreign documents for a long time. We even worked translating documents for the military and creating movie subtitles! What is so special about our English to Spanish translations? Our localization skills. Besides our accuracy, we are able to apply to these translations the neutralism of standard Spanish or specific Spanish-speaking countries. For more information about our rates, our previous work experience and how can we help you, contact us via email at or visit our profile page.

What: Sting closing the Amnesty International festival: "Desde Chile: Un Abrazo A La Esperanza" (from Chile: Embracing Hope)
Where: Estadio Nacional, Santiago, Chile.
When: October 13, 1990.
How: A Mega concert that included Luz Casal, Jackson Browne, Inti Illimani, New Kids On The Block, Ruben Blades and Sinéad O'Connor.
Why: Pinochet's Army Government gave up power earlier in 1990 after 17 years of dictatorship. Try throwing a concert like this one during his regime, in the same place, and see what happens.
It is true: Joan Manuel Serrat, the Spanish singer-songwriter, was stopped at the Santiago Airport and denied to enter the country earlier, in March, before the transition. Sting, Sinead O'Connor, Peter Gabriel and the others arrived to Chile no problem later that October...
Who played with Sting: Dominic Miller: Guitar, Kenny Kirkland: Keyboards, Vinnie Colaiuta: Drums, Sting: Bass. Sinéad O'Connor, Peter Gabriel: Vocals. Inti Illimani: Pan pipes. Sting's band was recording, at that time, The Soul Cages, maybe Sting's most sad album about the death of his father.

Sen-sa-cio-nal. Me llevó un par de noches ver todos los videos, pero valió la pena. Felicitaciones por la recopilación de material videográfico de una buena época de la música, que felizmente pudo llegar a Latinoamérica.

Un abrazo,

que paso con los videos en youtube del concierto?? si no los puedes volver a postear, sabes si hay alguna manera de adquirir una copia del concierto?

Estimado Anónimo,

Lamentablemente no los puedo volver a postear, puesto que YouTube, en la aleatoria y poco comprensible actitud matonesca que los caracteriza, decidió retirarlos so excusa de violación de derechos de autor (algo así como cuando dejan en paz otros posts pro-violencia, o videos de torturas pero retiran uno que tenga un pezón femenino).

Envíame un email (ver encabezado del blog) para conversar.
