Rosario ‘La Tremendita’ (The Warrior) has a name that fits her personality. The singer with her gently raw voice has conquered her place in the flamenco world. Born in Triana, the gypsy quarter of Sevilla, and raised by her great grandmother and father in the ‘cante jondo’, La Tremendita knows how to give the old style its characteristic sting. El pellizco, the secret weapon of every good singer, is natural to her. It is why flamenco dance innovators such as Belén Maya, Andrés Marín and Rocío Molina want to collaborate with her. With them she has toured international venues for years. With Delirium Temens, her third solo album, she reveals herself surprisingly as a contemporary singer-songwriter. Her lyrics were inspired by the poems of Anne Sexton and she accompanies herself on (bass) guitar. Her album is her musical response to a personal crisis which she liberated herself. ‘It’s impossible to be more flamenco than Rosario La Tremendita. When she sings a bulería from her great grandmother La Pescaera, you cannot deny her. When she sings unaccompanied by guitar her performance becomes hair-raising. Her ‘cante puro’ is instantly enchanting and seems to stop time. La Tremendita makes your soul shiver and stirs its deepest secrets’ (Le Monde).
