Toña la Negra

The title song is on the album Cenizas, Toña La Negra.

Cenizas (Ashes)

Toña La Negra

Toña La Negra, born in Veracruz, possessed a soft and milky voice, perfect for intoning the strong Afro-Caribbean hues. She specialized in Agustín Lara's repertoire, but her biggest hit was the torrid "Cenizas," by composer Wello Rivas. La Negra speaks about her broken heart with a dignity and pride that set this song apart from others with similar themes. Thus, "Cenizas" ends up being an ode to broken hearts, enveloped in the irresistible textures of wind instruments.
