The present Doodle, represented by Lima, Peru-based visitor artist Lucía Coz, celebrates the 101st birthday of Peruvian Creole artist Eloísa Angulo, referred to by numerous individuals as “Sovereign of the Creole Song.”
A mix of Spanish, African, and local Andean impacts, música criolla (Creole music) stays a lively image of the rich culture and legacy of waterfront Peru, and Angulo is among the genre’s most loved performers.
Eloísa Angulo was born on this day in 1919 in Peru’s capital city of Lima. From the time she was a youngster, she needed to turn into an artist, and she was even known to flee from school to partake in challenges held by Lima radio stations so as to make her dreams a reality.
In the mid 1930s, Angulo burst onto the scene alongside Margarita Cerdeña in the pair Las criollitas, which kept going nearly thirty years.
Named “La criollita,” she got known for her wonderful and regularly humorous interpretations of songs like “Araña, ¿quién te arañó?” (“Spider, Who Scratched You?” 1972) and “El conejito” (“The Bunny,” 1972).
Notwithstanding denoting Angulo’s birthday, October 31 is seen in Peru as Día de la canción criolla (Day of the Creole Song), a yearly festival of the timeless and remarkably Peruvian art expression to which Angulo devoted her life.
