Big Divas: Annie Lenox


No one on earth could feel like this
I'm thrown and overflown with bliss
There must be an angel
Playing with my heart

Rocio Jurado who art in heavens

Una mujer que cantó de otra manera/ A woman who sang in a different way.

Holly Woodlawn


Holly came from Miami, F.L.A.
Hitch-hiked her way across the USA
Plucked her eyebrows on the way
Shaved her legs and then he was a she
She says, Hey babe
Take a walk on the wild side
Hey honey
Take a walk on the wild side
Lou Reed

Coralia e Maruxa. Santiago mon amour

Coralia e Maruxa llamaban la atención cuando paseaban por el centro de Santiago de Compostela, con su extravagante maquillaje y sus ropas demodé. Las excéntricas hermanas son muy conocidas en la capital gallega, incluso hay una estatua dedicada a ellas; ahora el documntal Coralia e Maruxa, as irmás Fandiño, de Xosé Rivadulla nos descubre el el drama por el que pasaron, y las dejo como en otro tiempo, drama familiar causado por la guerra civil.  Nacidas en 1911 ambas fallecieron, Coralia en 1980 y Maruxa en 1983
