The story of Guadalupe Victoria Yoli Raymond, known as La Lupe, is a poignant tale of a performer ruled by instinct and ecstasy. First, she was the right talent at the right place at the right time — and then, all too soon, she wasn't. Before long, the one-time sensation was cast aside by the music industry, and is now all but forgotten. La Lupe has never been given as thorough and carefully selected a retrospective as the two-disc anthology Puro Teatro. If there's any cultural justice, it should redeem her completely. She was much more than a wild woman — she was a whole gang of them at once. At first, she kept catching lucky breaks. Born in either or in southern Cuba, La Lupe won a singing contest and soon was performing with popular regional bands. She made two LPs under her own name in and But Fidel Castro wasn't into a female singer who cackled and shouted, jiggled and twitched, tore at her clothes and hair and sometimes threw shoes at her band.

I was both enthralled and concerned wondering what was going on with this woman? Is she ok? Is she sick or dying? But, no, it was neither - she was simply trying to unzip her dress while singing on stage but because she was wearing a dress with the zipper on the back, she couldn't quite make it! I don't know if she succeded or not since my mother was so alarmed by what was going on that she hurriedly took me away. You managed to capture the erratic yet intriguing essence of La Lupe.
