Album Review

Released only a few months before she passed away at the age of 93, the last album from the incomparable Chavela Vargas is a moving tribute to Federico García Lorca, arguably the greatest Spanish poet of the 20th century. In this disc-plus-book release, Vargas recites 16 of Lorca's poems while guitarists Juan Carlos Allende and Miguel Peña fill the musical background with timeless melodies from the classic repertoire of Mexican ranchera and bolero that Vargas will be forever associated with ("Macorina," "Soledad," "Piensa en Mí," etc.). Two new songs complete the album, "¿Qué Hicieron con Tu Muerte?" and "Ángel Que No Vela," both inspired by Lorca's life, work, and tragic death. Luna Grande is a dignified farewell from one of the most emblematic Latin artists of the past century.
