About this Artist
Peruvian vocalist TANIA LIBTERTAD is considered one of the greatest singers in Latin America today. She began singing romantic boleros at the age of five, building up a repertoire of more than 300 boleros by the time she was sixteen. At 21, she was invited to a political song festival in Cuba and began singing protest songs and sentimental ballads with musician-activists of the nueva trova movement until moving to Mexico. Over the course of her career, Ms. Libertad has made over 36 recordings that have sold more than two million copies combined. She has performed in concert throughout the US, Central America, and the Andean countries of Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, and Colombia and has collaborated with such artists as Miguel Bosé, Ruben Blades, Cesária Évora, Mercedes Sosa, and Plácido Domingo. Ms. Libertad has been named an Ambassador for Peace by Unesco, Comendadora by the Peruvian government, and a member of the Order of Rio Branco by the Brazilian government. In early 2012, she began celebrating 50 years as a performer with two sold out performances at the Palacio de Bellas Artes, Mexico City’s most prestigious concert hall, and began an extensive tour throughout Latin America. She makes her Walt Disney Concert Hall debut with this concert.
