Musical career

Hernán Gómez joined Quilapayún in 1968, the same year and a little before Rodolfo Parada , and only three years after the founding of the band, in 1965. Hernán is invited by the member Willy Oddó , who joined the band the previous year , and who he also knew for being, like Gómez, an engineering student at the Technical University . His goal would be to replace Julio Carrasco on the strings, one of the founders of the band. [ 4 ]

Exile

Gómez along with Quilapayún went into exile to France , a product of the 1973 coup in Chile and subsequent military dictatorship .

At the beginning of what would be a fruitful musical era for the band, Eduardo Carrasco gives his companions an internal musical composition workshop, this work being patent in the 1975 album Adelante , which includes the song "Fiesta en la cocha" . whose lyrics were written by Hernán Gómez. This album also contains compositions by Willy Oddó , Rodolfo Parada and Hugo Lagos . [ 5 ]

After the return to Democracy in Chile in 1990, part of Quilapayún decided to stay, while others returned to Chile. Hernán will be one of those who return.

Return to Chile

In 2002 Hernán Gómez, along with Hugo Lagos , another member of the band who went to France and returned like him, decided to leave the band after several internal problems in the divided Quilapayún. However, they manage to resolve and the following year they meet again in the group with two key members, belonging to the first generation and who had left it long ago: Eduardo Carrasco and Carlos Quezada . This event in the band's history will be evident in the album « El reencuentro » , released in 2004 by the Quilapayún faction in Chile. [ 6 ]
