On Saturday June 1, the country experienced a musical celebration in honor of mothers, when Lolita and Rosario Flores sang and charmed the audience that filled the National Theatre of the House of Culture in Quito.
The two Spanish artists infected the audience of Quito with enthusiasm, charisma and humor in a two hour concert. “Tu pena, penita, pena” opened the concert with the projection of images of their mother, the Pharaoh.
The artistic quality of these two great performers was evident on stage when they were singing; their voices were always accompanied with sensual movements, characteristic of their gypsy origin.
The first to act was Lolita, 54. “Amor, Amor”, her first song, immediately captivated the audience. She continued with “No renunciaré”, “Estupido”, “Que será de mí”, “Mediterraneo”, original by Joan Manuel Serrat, among others.
Fifty minutes later, her sister Rosario, 50, entered the stage. The youngest daughter of the Pharaoh sang her hits. “Sabor, sabor”, “Estoy aquí”, “Cómo quieres que te quiera”, among others.
Then, both ecourage the public to rose from their seats to the tune of “El meneíto”, performed as a duet, but not before singing together “Esta tarde vi llover.”
“Thank you for your welcome”, “see you soon” were the words repetaed by Rosario and Lolita before leaving the stage.
