Schwenke y Nilo

Remembering Nelson Schwenke : by Jeckillson

Remembering one of my favorite groups of music I grew up listening in Chile, Schwenke & Nilo.  All through high school and college and even living here in the US, I’ve carried my old CDs, trying to keep a little bit of Chile in the place I call home, now.

Singer Nelson Schwenke passed away today after a car accident in Santiago, Chile at 55 years of age.  My thoughts are with his family and his partner in singing.  We have lots to remember him for.

In a beautiful video I can hear his voice and see a little of beautiful southern Chile.  Just like in Valdivia, Portland is raining right now.

Buen viaje.
