Juan Bobo History Lesson:

Myrta Silva

Myrta Silva had a 40-year reign as “the Queen of the Guaracha.” She was the premier female singer in Puerto Rico and New York.

Myrta sang and composed dozens of chart-topping hits. She headlined with many bands in Puerto Rico, Cuba and the United States; and hosted musical variety TV shows in both Puerto Rico and New York.

They called her La Gorda de Oro (the Fat Lady Made of Gold). She was a talented musical comedienne… 

She was a great Latin singer…
