Charo

Spanish spitfire Charo is instantly recognizable with her big blonde hair, her tight and flamboyant clothes that leave little of her voluptuous figure to the imagination, and most of all, her jubilant, jiggling "coochie, coochie" (an interjection that Charo, with a laugh, admits has no real meaning) spoken with a thick Castilian accent. Though her image is that of the consummate bimbo, there is much more to Charo than meets the eye. She is a gifted comedienne who prides herself on putting on shows suitable for families and is also a very talented Spanish guitarist and singer. Although she professionally mangles the English language on-stage, she can read and write it fluently; Charo is also fluent in Japanese, French, and Spanish.

As a young girl, she studied guitar under Andres Segovia, one of the fathers of modern classical guitar music. She came to the U.S. in the '70s and married the much older Spanish bandleader Xavier Cugat. A regular on television talk shows of the era, she appeared frequently in nightclubs and occasionally as a television actress in shows such as Fantasy Island. She has gained most of her renown on the nightclub circuit touring such hot spots as Las Vegas and Atlantic City, but after the birth of her son in the early '80s, she and her new husband moved to Hawaii. Though she has focused more on raising her child over the last decade, Charo continues to perform regularly at the Honolulu resort the Polynesian Palace. She also tours the mainland occasionally. In 1994, she released her first Latino album, Guitar Passion, an album on which she played and sang flamenco-style pop songs on her guitar. Though it didn't receive much radio airplay, it stayed on the Billboard album charts for several months. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

I am always amazed when anyone master's the classical guitar, it seems as though Charo has done that.

Cool.
she has made me laugh, dream (or is that daydream???) now she's made me meditate, think and cry.
Muy, muy bonita. And it comes from a very beautyful and good heart. DMB
!CHARO! ? Where you been amiga? You never fooled me for a second mi enamorado. I always have Know that you are a consummate multi-talent e d artist genious (besides being a knock out muchacha). How very nice to hear you and that artistic genious again. Coochi - coochi coraz'on. Yo te quiero. DMB
I'm impress, this is the first time hearing her. Gosh I would to love see her in person. I'll see where she is scheduled to perform this year.
Charo kicks a*& on guitar. She is considered one of the world's best and has won many awards and polls over the years. The stage persona is one thing, her talent another.

Excellent Music!

She amazes all you go girl
Charo is a beautiful person.... I had seen her perform in 1991 in Honolulu and she was amazing and friendly, went over to everyone in the audience and I was able to take a picture with her. She's a very talented and wonderful person. God bless her! -- Christine Burns
I have always been impressed with Charo's talent. From her television appearances, especially on The Love Boat, where she displayed some of her Guitar talents, her singing ability as well as her humor. Following her career recently when I had purchased her CD shown, I had found out that she is rated as the World's #1 Flamenco guitarist. No surprise there. The write-up didn't mention was the fact that she also teaches Spanish Guitar to under privileged kids in Hawaii. You go Charo!

Her music is as hot as she is! Brava!
I recognize her music with the first strum of the strings, no other like Charo. My favorite by far.
bluchap
I love her fun uninhibited style!

Beautiful! Nearly took my breath away :)

Wow...I'm stunned at the beautiful music! Loved her growing up and love this more. Thank you Charo!
Always knew she had lots of talent. Have been a fan since i was a teenager...a long time.

I had no idea she was such a great guitarist. I remember her in the 60s and 70s. Her Bio says she was born Jan 15, 1951. I thought she was older than that. I would like to see her perform sometime.
I love everything about her!
To be honest, I too am a bit stunned. I also had a very different impression of Charo. So good to know she is more than typically portrayed.
All I ever knew about Charo was the "Coohie, coohie" persona. What a talented guitarist!

I saw Charo in 2006 at the Big E fairgrounds in Springfield Mass. She was amazing. Absolutely hilarious and beautiful. Her guitarwork was flawless. She is coming to Provincetown Mass. in August for carnival week. I am getting tickets today. I Love Charo!!!
I remember when I was unknowingly listening to a song of hers from Guitar Passion - wow, hot stuff - on par with Jesse Cooke I thought. Then I found out it was her. Book, meet cover. Who knew?
