57 - La Chamana

Called the rough voice of tenderness by those that loved her, Chavela Vargas is best known for her haunting renditions of traditional Mexican rancheras, despite being Costa Rican.

Although throughout most of career Vargas had never directly addressed her sexuality, she let her music and personality do the talking, refusing the change the lyrics of songs (which were often written by men in dedication to women), drinking heavily, wearing men’s clothing, and often carrying with her a riffle.

At the age of 81 Vargas publicly announced that she was indeed lesbian, and from then (until her death 12 years later) she became a loud voice in favor of lesbian visibility.

Print now available to buy www.DignidadRebelde.com “El Corazon de Pan Dulce”, Melanie Cervantes,13 x 18 inches, 4-Color, Hand pulled, Screenprint, Cougar Double Thick 160# Paper, Printed in San Leandro CA 2014

El Corazon (de Pan Dulce) is my first take on the popular Loteria iconography. There are 54 uniquely designed cards in game Loteria. The Mexican game of chance holds a a special place in many my heart because I remember raucous games with 54 being played among family members both in Mexico and the U.S.

I created this piece to support the former owner of Casa Latina-Jose Ruiz’s crowdsourced fundraiser, “De Corazon a Corazon”, to be given to donors as a special thank you. I tied the theme of the fundraiser “corazon” to pan dulce because of the bakery at Casa Latina. I have a small number of artist proofs available for sale here on DignidadRebelde.com
