The mother of Afro-Peruvian music
With her new album Palabras Urgentes, singer Susana Baca marks the 50th year of her extraordinary musical career. This striking woman both won several Grammys and served as the Peruvian Minister of Culture. The album fuses her social commitment with the sunny side of music.
Translated as "Urgent Truths," the album was recorded as a form of protest, to spark debate and meant to address the current difficult times. It is the combination of the beauty of the music and the urgency of the lyrics that makes Palabras Urgentes so compelling.
The first single "La Herida Oscura" is a tribute to Micaela Bastidas, the guerrilla leader and one of the bravest women of Peruvian independence, now 200 years ago.
