Known as a raucous, entertaining raconteur, Chavela chose the stories she liked best, breathed life into them and made them manifest. In her amazing journey from a 14-year-old rejected runaway from Costa Rica to world-renowned, Grammy-winning Mexican icon, this dream weaver took bits and pieces of who she was and who she wanted to be and wove them into reality. Although she didn't officially "come out" until she was 81-years-old, Chavela carefully crafted a public persona as a powerful, rebellious, free-spirited outsider, a sexual outlaw who blazed her own unique trail until she left the physical plane at the tender age of 93.
