• Question

    On the track "Mentira", Manu Chao, album "Clandestino", we hear a sample of a lady singing a love song. Does anyone know her name?

    " ... Diggin' arty French flicks with my shades on."
  • Addendum

    The song is "La Llorona", and I have a version by Joan Baez - but who is that lady? Could it be Gloria de la Cruz?

    Well, I really tried to find out, but I'm sorry. I have no idea. :(

  • Thanks anyway for trying. I found this on youtube -

    which sounds to me like the one, but still no name.

    chavela vargas also sings la llorona..

  • I've listened to both Chavela Vargas and Lila Downs now. I think Ms Vargas's voice is a little too deep. I think it could be Lila Downs, though there's so much going on in the Manu Chao track I can't be certain. I think she is no.1 candidate. There's no name given in the notes to my copy of the "Clandestino" album (UK edition).
    Thanks everyone for taking the time to reply.
    I note that the youtube video to which I referred previously has now disappeared.

  • I'll go with the consensus, Lila Downs. Cheers everybody.

  • Check this

  • Case closed, insofar as we know the source. Thanks, Dukenny and Alvaro. Still don't know the singer's name though. Anyway, move over Lila Downs.
