The Maria Callas of the Andes; vocal phenomenon spanning a five octaves reach. In fact she concentrated on these upper highs and lows. Written by her husband, manager and overall exploiter. He was the leader of the Compania Peruana del Arte where she became part of.

Covers:

2001:

Tattoo Del Tigre [vocal: Esmé Bos, imitating the inimitatable; her lows outdo the original's in bestial gutturality]

2001:

Loes Luca

2006:

Thicke [founding Everything I Can't Have]

Not to be confused with Ginastera's Malambo, covered by the Keith Emerson Band ('08).
