Chavela Vargas

The best and longest preserved of the Mexican cancion ranchera singers, Chavela Vargas began singing rather late in life -- past the age of 30 -- but continued well into old age, charming audiences until she was well into her seventies. Born in Costa Rica in 1919, she first sang on a professional level in the early '50s, and toured with the legendary José Alfredo Jiménez. Her first recordings appeared in 1961, and she became quite popular during the 1960s and '70s, both in her native land as well as across the ocean in Spain and Europe. Although she retired in 1979, a victim of alcoholism, Vargas returned in 1990 after accepting a role in the Werner Herzog film A Cry of Stone. One year later, she contributed a song to the soundtrack of Tacones Lejanos, and in 1993 she entered a recording studio for the first time in decades. Chavela Vargas died in August 2012 in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico at the age of 93, after suffering from heart and respiratory problems. ~ John Bush

A whole new world of sound came to me tonight. Typed in Lila Downs and C. Vargas played. We were all excited saying "Is that the singer from the "Frida" movie? Very distinctive voice. Happy I have her name now. This Black American woman loves it, it reminds me of what soul music used to be - honest. Just beautiful.

I didn't know about her until I was in a Joaquin Sabina's concert in Mexico city and he mention her in a song. It has a very melancholic touch and sound. Great music.

Amazing singer from Costa Rica, living in Mexico
See her in "La Ultima Traga" great film about Spanish language women singers

I know her personally! Have a vinyl with her autograph. In the late 50's we'd go to a bar in Mexico City called "Catari" and watch her perform and smoke her cigars.

She also sang a song in the movie called "Frida"

It is not really true that she began singing late in life. Read "Y si quieres saber de mi pasado" para saber más de quien fue en realidad esta mujer, cuya voz no tiene igual ni en México ni en el todo el mundo.
