I cried all night

So much emotion, so well captured. This is probably the best chavela CD I have heard!

Exceptional!

What an amazing performance, from her heart to our souls. The pain vibrating from Chavela's voice is haunting and surreal. If you can appreciate these classic songs, you will feel mesmerized by the way she sings these heartbreaking lyrics. Oh! You will feel the despair and agony! Undoubtedly her best album!

I was there......

I was there that night. It seemed every latin person in New York City, from every country, waving every flag showed up to hear these songs. Beautiful old songs that we had grown up with and come to love in a deeply profound sense. Yes, she's old and yes, perhaps there are/were singers with a better technical command of this idiom but this woman changed our lives that night. Or perhaps she just took us back to that place where all our lives began...
