As the winter temperatures drop in the northern hemisphere, it helps to listen to the hot Cuban jazz vocal stylings of Cuban soprano, Xiomara Alfaro. She was born in Havana in 1950. She performed with Cuban composer and pianist Ernesto Lecuona. Her version of the song Siboney was the composer’s favorite. Her musical style of choice was bolero, and she sang in a sky-high range only attainable by birds in the sky. She was aptly called “La Alondra de la Cancion,” or The Lark of Music.
