Ely Guerra+Eugenia León+Tania Libertad
It takes a trio of Mexican divas to salute larger-than-life Costa Rica-born singer Chavela Vargas, who died in August at age 93. Known as "the rough voice of tenderness," Vargas became the authoritative interpreter of many Mexican rancheras, boleros, and corridos. No slouches themselves, Guerra, Léon, and Libertad have reshaped Mexican music as performers comfortable in the country's rock, pop, folk, and nueva canción idioms.
