Martirio is the Ellis Regina of Spain. Her treatment of the flamenco and latin-american songbooks is unique. In her most recent recordings Martirio has managed to break new ground in her tireless search. As always in her songs, the woman is no longer the powerless victim of the man. More and more she takes the reins of her fate and her sensuality.
Reviews"Martirio's voice is full-bodied, rich, and warm, spanning a wide tonal and timbral range through this collection of pieces from a range of composers. When she goes for the target, as she does on the (mostly) wispy 'Uno,' she rarely misses; but when she lets loose, as on the heavily flamencoed 'Volver,' the fire runs hot. The most exciting moments occur when she mixes things up, as she does on 'En esta tarde gris,' where near-operatic precision gives way to pure flame. She opens the valves for the rough-edged flamenco peak.
