The Children of Guillermo Tell (William Tell), is a theme that moves to think the dilemma of the generations
This song could register within that category we call protest song. In fact in the recordings you can hear a crowd of young people clapping in key phrases, which emphasize with the troubadour the why they support those ideas.
It is the hymn of a generation that wants to take its place in history, to generate a just and necessary, historical leadership in the best sense of the word.
Guillermo Tell is taken as the hero who incarnated the mythical, the irrevocable, the rebellion in his quintessence, alludes to the son like that other who wants to take a place of his own, decide where to place the apple, where to launch the arrow.
Carlos Varela has us accustomed to these musical certainties, which transcend the melody and are absolute truths. Guillermo Tell did not forgive his son is a phrase that is repeated, and did not forgive him not because the son did not know what to do, but by the boldness, the gesture, the daring. A daring that is actually a natural way of behaving, of assuming the concept of generation.
Guillermo Tell, Leader of his Generation
Like so many times, Varela assumes the role of troubadour, demiurge, pythoniso, irreverent, man of multitudes, it is the soul of all others, the voice of the voiceless, the eternal youth, art in His pure personality.
It is not without reason that Varela dresses in black, and writes pessimistically, in all his songs there is a hole of bottomless causes that are going to be lost forever, Varela dresses in black not for elegance, not for being chic, and although seems an extravagant point of view, one imagines that Varela is the son of Guillermo Tell.
