Song of the Week: "Guantanamera"

My favorite Pete Seeger song, because Seeger passed away this week at the age of 94. This song--based on the poem he cites at the beginning of this recording--was his response to the Cuban Missile Crisis. Recorded live at Carnegie Hall, this appeared on his 1963 album We Shall Overcome.
