Cinco de Mayo

Mexican culture

In appreciation of Mexican culture, I want to highlight the work of singer/songwriter, Chavela Vargas, who passed away in 2012 but whose voice still lives on via various venues, including YouTube. She had an amazing voice. To learn more about her, go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chavela_Vargas. One of my favorites from her is Gabino Barrera, which I first heard in the movie sound track for Werner Herzog’s My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done?.  To listen to the song, click https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDvkwuO_3YU.
