Description
 
Yolanda Broyles-Gonzalez. Lydia Mendoza began her legendary musical career as a child in the 1920s, singing for coins on the streets of San Antonio, Texas. The life story of this Chicana icon encompasses a 60-year singing career that began with the dawn of the recording industry in the 1920s & continued well into the 1980s. Her status as a working-class idol continues to this day, making her one of the most prominent & long-standing performers in the history of the recording industry & a champion of Chicana/o music. This bilingual English & Spanish edition presents Mendoza’s historia in an interview between the artist & the author. Concludes with an extended essay on the significance of Mendoza’s career & her place in Tajana music & Chicana studies. Includes a CD.
