CD Reviews

Lucha sings for many women
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Singer Lucha Reyes, before her suicide in 1944, transformed the Mexican ranchera into a distillation of her own tragedies. Her tequila-soaked voice held Mexico as spellbound as Edith Piaf ruled France, but her life was even darker: her faithless husband and friends pale beside the demonic mother who raised her in a brothel. Yet she could not avoid passing this pain onto the child she adopted - or bought - to raise. Ripstein, in the film "Reina de la Noche" [Queen of the Night] transmutes biographical elements into an even more riveting vision of myth and destruction where melodrama melts into obsessive destruction."

"There are two Lucha Reyes, one from Mexico (this one) and the other from Peru. Make sure you are ordering the right one! It is very hard to find recordings of the Peruvian Lucha Reyes, although they are well worth the trouble."
The Peruvian Piaf

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Lucha Reyes was a tragic Peruvian singer of great intensity, perfect diction, beautiful sense of rythm and poignant soulfulness. Her voice reminds one of the young Edith Piaf, it is a powerful, resonnant instrument and although she died young because of very poor health, she remains one of Peru's emblematic singers."
