Lydia Mendoza - Vida Mia (CD)

La Alondra de la Frontera & La Cancionera de los Pobres were some of the monikers bestowed upon Lydia by her fans throughout her long career. She captivated not only Tejanos of south Texas, but spanish speaking people throughout the western hemisphere with her songs of love, betrayal, and hardship. For these recordings from early in her career (1934-39) Lydia employed a great variety of songs: boleros, tangos, canciones, paso dobles, danzas and many others. With the exception of a few recordings with her family (where she plays the violin,) Lydia accompanies herself with the rich sound of her 12 string guitar on these early solo performances, assisted on a few by her sister, mandolinist María Mendoza.
