Rosario La Tremendita is a heap of contradictions. She radiates tranquility and tenderness, but claims to be possessed by demons (“Tremendous inside!”).

Musically, she is deeply rooted in the flamenco tradition of her native Triana, but she is also at the cutting edge of experimentation. A fierce warrior who wants peace more than anything else. A workaholic, always in studios or touring the world, she would rather be at home cooking... every yin has its yang.

Rosario opened up without inhibition during our interview; we talked about her existential crisis two years ago - a broken relationship, chaos, pain, depression, psychotherapy - and yet, all this time she was smiling and even laughing at her own calamities. She copes by doing what her family has always done, singing happy songs in times of distress.
