Paraguayan singer Perla Posted by on Jan 26, 2010 in Spanish Culture

I’ve already written a bit about Perla some time ago and in this post I’m going to tell you guys a very interesting experience.

Know when you dream of meeting your idol for so many years then one day, boom! you finally do it! That’s what happened to me. I’ve always been a Perla’s fan because I grew up listening to her songs here in Brazil and on September 27 she came to perform in my city.

I have this student whose uncle organizes the fair where she was going to perform and he got his uncle to arrange a meeting where I could chat a bit with her.

Perla is Paraguayan and was born in the city of Caacupé. She used to have very long, straight black hair and her huge vocal range always fascinated me. She has recorded over 50 albums and has lived in Brazil for 40 years. She has also performed for presidents, ministers, kings and queens all over the world.

Her songs are mostly in Portuguese, Spanish and Guarani, and are widely known in Brazil.

Here’s one of Paraguay’s most traditional religious songs sung by Perla, Virgencita de Caacupé.

¡Nos vemos prontito!
