La Lupe

The Incredible "Queen of Latin-Soul" - - LA LUPE!
LupeHomePage.jpg
December 23, 1939 - February 29, 1992
It is with great pride that Im able to express how honored I feel for having presented La Lupe to audiences countless times during the 1960s and early 70s. During those years La Lupe and I developed a very good friendship and a mutual respect for each other. We shared many exciting moments together and she often asked for my advice and critique of her performances. I always answered in the same way, "I think you are incredible, but it is that audience out there that says it best. Listen to those screams and applause."

Despite all of our interactions on and off stage and our many conversations, my knowledge of her background is limited. One reason is that we talked as friends and I never actually interviewed her. I didnt consider myself a writer or had a reason to be one. That is until I started publishing Latin NY magazine a few years later.

More of my thoughts on La Lupe will be posted as they come to mind.

A Few Brief Biographical Facts of Guadalupe "La Lupe" Yoli
Guadalupe Yoli known to the world as LA LUPE, was originally from Santiago, Cuba and moved to New York City in the early 1960s. Her great talent and potential became immediately evident with her very first recording with another Cuban, the legendary Latin-Jazz artist, Mongo Santamaria. But La Lupe is probably best remembered from her recordings with the King of Latin Music, Tito Puente. Together they produced some of the most memorable Super Hits that are considered Latin Music "Classics" worldwide. Lupe also recorded with many other legends of Salsa music before passing away in 1992.

La Lupes dynamic and unique stage performances made her one of the most sought after artists that jam packed dance halls throughout the city. Her fame and popularity continued to grow and created a tremendous interest in her that spread beyond the Latino community. Americans started to discover this new and explosive singing sensation. Due to her strong voice, torrid love affairs, drug problems, poor financial management and a large following of gays, the media referred to her as the Latina "Judy Garland."

She was considered to be one of Latin Musics Top Female Stars of all time and given the title, "Queen of Latin Soul. Her song "Puro Teatro" became an international hit after Spanish movie director, Pedro Almodovar used the song in his film "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown" which received international acclaim.

The official records indicate that La Lupe died of natural causes

There are a few companies planning a major motion picture of La Lupes life. We will post any information as we get it.

There is a book coming out very soon written by Juan Moreno.
