Chavela Vargas, a Costa Rican-Mexican singer, was born Isabel Vargas Lizano in San Joaquín de Flores, Costa Rica on April 17, 1919. She is especially known for her rendition of rancheras genre - a folkloric musical genre widely popular in Mexico - but she is also recognized for her contribution to other popular Latin American song genres. In her youth, she dressed as a man, smoked cigars, drank heavily, carried a gun and was known for her characteristic red poncho, which she still does in performances.

Vargas has been an influential interpreter in the Americas and Europe, muse to figures such as Pedro Almodovar, hailed for her haunting performances, and called "la voz aspera de la ternura", the bitter voice of tenderness. At 81 years old, she openly admitted she was a lesbian.

At only 14, she fled her native country due to lack of musical career opportunities, seeking refuge in Mexico, where an entertainment industry was burgeoning. For many years she sang on the streets but in her thirties she became a professional singer.

Isabel Burton (1831-1896) was the wife of English explorer Richard Francis Burton. She accompanied her husband on many of his travels and assisted him in his translations. She notably burned her husband's translation of The Scented Garden after his death because she thought it was too graphic to be published. Unfortunately, she was demonized by her husband's relatives (whose hatred of her stemmed from the fact that she was Catholic), who portrayed her as an ignorant, sheltered Victorian prude rather than the intelligent women she really was.
