La Lupe: Queen of Latin Soul

A tribute to the Afro-Cuban bad girl of Latin music, Lupe Yoli. Talk by Sophia Buchuck plus screening of Ela Troyano's recent film La Lupe: Queen of Latin Soul.

An unmissable tribute to the Afro-Cuban bad girl of Latin Music, Lupe Yoli. "La Lupe" was a rebel and musical innovator who pioneered salsa. Her sexually-explosive, trance-like performance style and tragic life made her a worldwide gay icon.

Sophia Buchuck, Latin American vocalist and community historian talks about the legendary Cuban-born star, and discusses the history of Latin American soul scene in London.

Buchuck's talk accompanies a screening of Ela Troyano's film La Lupe: Queen of Latin Soul (2007, 55mins). The film guides us from her humble beginnings in rural pre-revolutionary Cuba to fame as the queen of New York Latin Soul of the 1960s and 1970s; telling La Lupe's story through interviews and mesmerisimg archival footage.

Organised by The Women's Library in partnership with Untold London.
