Las Voces de los Ochenta / As Vozes dos Oitenta / Voices of the Eighties

It is little known among Anglophones that some great '80s New Wave music came from places like Chile and Brazil, as these music videos from "The Prisoners" and "The Mudflaps of Success" demonstrate — Los Prisioneros - La voz de los 80 / Os Paralamas Do Sucesso - Alagados/De Frente Pro Crime. (Those in the know will recognize in the second video the unmistakable soaring guitar chords of Anglophone West African Highlife.)
