Why do we love Chavela Vargas?
María Isabel Anita Carmen de Jesús, better known as Chavela Vargas, was a Mexican singer who, although she had a complicated childhood, she was a very confident woman.
She had a very emotive way to sing; just with her lovely voice and her guitar, she could make people fall in love. The way she dressed and acted was so original (kinda masculine) and impecable, but always a lady. She received awards such as Distinguished Citizen in Mexico, Special Guest in Buenos Aires, and a Latin Grammy.
It’s incredible how she launched her last CD at the age of 93; full of joy, poetry, and beautiful feelings. She was proud of the Mexican culture, loved food and mariachis. Though she was famous all around the world and could choose anywhere, she decided to rest in peace in the country she loves: Mexico. We love her patriotism till the end of her days. ♥
Chavelita, we miss you! You're quite a Loly Icon! ♥
