Quelentaro was a Chilean folk music group founded in 1963 by two brothers born and raised in Angol. Those two faces in the mural are the brothers Guzmán; however, the group had 6 members and was founded more than 400 km away from Angol. Near the place where the group was formed there is an estuary that bears the name Quelentaro, closed to the Rapel Hydroelectric Plant, in the O’Higgins Region of Chile.
The phrase that is written on the mural “cuando todo está sucio, hasta lo limpio parece Mancha…” (when everything is dirty, even cleanliness looks like Stain …), it is part of the lyrics of a song by the Quelentaro musical group.
It is clearly seen that the wall where the mural is located is on top of a thicker and older wall that fell due to the earthquake of February 27th in 2010. It was at magnitude 8 on the Mercalli scale in Angol.
The last of the Guzmán brothers died in August 2019 and the mural was made in October 2019 as a tribute to the founders of Quelentaro by PABLO ANTAY as shown in the last photo with his signature or tag.
