La canción de la semana #340

Isabel Vargas Lizano, better known as Chavela Vargas, passed away on 5 August at the age of 93. Three Mexican stars, Ely Guerra, Eugenia León and Tania Libertad, will be paying a homage to the great singer on 27 November at the Carnegie Hall, as a part of the Celebrate México Now! festival.

This week's song is La Bruja, beautifully sung by Eugenia León some 20 years ago. Alternative, but not less beautiful, version is a duet of León and Lila Downs.
