Rosario La Tremendita - The Warrior - has her name. The singer with her soft raw voice stands her man in the flamenco world. Born in the gypsy quarter Triana, Sevilla and raised by her great-grandmother and father in the cante jondo, La Tremendita knows where and how to give the old voice that little bit of pain, so it hurts.
El pellizco, the secret weapon of every good singer, is naturally given to her. Flamenco dance innovators such as Belén Maya, Andrés Marín and Rocío Molina know how to find her. With them, she toured the international stages for years.
With Delirium Tremens, her third solo album, la Tremendita surprisingly emerges as a modern singer-songwriter. She wrote the music herself and the lyrics, for which she drew inspiration from the poems of Anne Sexton and accompanies herself on (bass) guitar. The album is her musical answer to a personal crisis from which she was ‘liberated’. The album especially breathes flamenco,, but is at the same time a step to musical freedom of a singer that was procousious in flamenco and is looking for new roads.
More flamenco then Rosario ‘La Tremendita’ is impossible. When she sings a Bulería from het great grandmother La Pescaera, you cannot get around it. And when she sings without that guitar she gives you the shivers. With her ‘cate puro’, she enchants you as with a flash of light and she seems to be stopping time.(…) La Tremendita shakes the soul and stirs the deepest secrets of the soul’ – Le Monde
