Powerful moment Chilean opera singer serenades Santiago amid enforced curfew

The anguished community of Santiago, Chile, battered from a torrent of violent protests recently, is brought to peace with Ayleen Jovita Romero and her smooth opera singing.

Soprano Ayleen Jovita Romero performed El Derecho de Vivir en Paz, or The Right to Live in Peace, a song that has become a national song of protest in Chile over the past decades, well past the hours of the enforced curfew on October 21.

On Oct. 19, the general in charge of security for Santiago imposed a curfew on the capital city and outlying areas, to be enforced from 10 pm until 7am.
