This chapter examines how the culture of resistance of working people in Chile crystallised into a counterculture which furnished the intellectual and subjective conditions for the rise of a Nuevo Chile, a socially-conscious society which nearly came to fruition under Salvador Allende. The role of poets, writers and popular singers such as Violeta Parra, Pablo Neruda and Victor Jara is highlighted, as well as emblematic songs such as 'La Cantata Santa Maria de Iquique'.
