The study of the New Song in Latin America in general and of the Chilean New Song in particular continues to attract the attention of historians, musicologists, and publishers. New publications of notable interest and rigor that approach some of the New Song's aspects and protagonists are continually added to the ample core of existing publications on the subject. One such new contribution is Chilean New Song and the Question of Culture in the Allende Government: Voices for a Revolution, by Natália Ayo Schmiedecke.

In this book, the Brazilian researcher addresses the field of culture in Chile under the government of Salvador Allende between November 1971 and September 1973. Her argument is structured in an introduction and four chapters in which she makes a wide-ranging and commendable tour of a variety of aspects of both the musical movement of the New Song and this historical period.
