Chavela Vargas Is A Great Singer and Songwriter
Reviewed in the United States on July 20, 2013
If you have Amparo Ochoa's Trova Yucateca, you can go straight to Chavela Vargas, who is a national figure in Mexico. For a country which is known as "macho", she also speaks for all Mexican women and never holds back her genuine emotions. On this CD are the originals of 14 of her best known compositions, which are among the best in all of Mexico.
The first is La Llorona (the crying woman). Soon we get to Gabino Barrera, Corrido de Cannanea and Simon Blanco.
These 14 songs are ones you will want to come back to many times. Most of the Chavela Vargas songs can be heard today in Mexico, but nobody interprets them better than Chavela. Enjoy!
