Yolanda Comparán Ferrer


When I was young at home in Mexico, I was prohibited to listen to any Mexican regional music. My family’s reason for this was because “Los Revolucionarios” hung my great-grandfather during the Mexican Revolution. The only music allowed in the house was waltz and opera.

At age ten my birthday present was a small transistor radio that I hid under the pillow to listen to forbidden music -- "rancheras." One magic day at sunrise Billie Holiday touched my soul. Later jazz, blues, R&B, rock, gospel, and country entered my life. Eventually I married a talented and great musician Alfonso Guerrero. From that point on I started promoting rock en español, punk, and electronic/acid.
