Spain: Maria Dolores Pradera - El Rosario De Mi Madre

Maria Dolores (Fernandez) Pradera (born 1924 in Madrid) is a Spanish melodic singer and actress, and one of the most prestigious voices in Spain and Latin America. She started her career as an actress, working in the theatre and in some of the most famous Spanish movies from the 1940s. During the 1950s, she started singing professionally, eventually abandoning her career as an actress in the 1960s. Since then, she has recorded more than 35 discs.

As a singer, she has specialized in traditional Spanish and Latin American music (Peruvian, Argentinian, Mexican, and Venezuelan). Her voice tone is clear and slightly low, and she has an extremely proper Spanish pronunciation. She typically sings accompanied by guitars, requintos, and drums...

Πολύ αξιόλογη καλλιτέχνης! Την είχα ακούσει πριν χρόνια στο El Tiempo que te quede libre και μου είχε κάνει μεγάλη εντύπωση.

Αλίκη, η γυναίκα είναι κορυφή! Στο λέω εσένα επειδή ξέρεις και τη Susana Baca...
