Venezuelan musician, composer, poet, and political activist. He was one of the best known representatives of Nueva canción ("new song") in Venezuela. His songs "condemning exploitation and repression, and celebrating resistance, struck a chord among a wide public," and he is known in Venezuela as El Cantor del Pueblo (The People's Singer). In 2005 the Venezuelan government declared his music to be national heritage.

Primera died in a car accident on 16 February 1985 on the Autopista Valle-Coche in Caracas.
