Lo primero que quiero hacer felicitarla muy sinceramente por haber conseguido recientemente la lámpara minera. Ya era hora de que en un festival tan importante (el más, diría yo) se reconociera su enorme categoría artística. Tiene usted una voz fuerte y poderosa pero dúctil y maleable, capaz de todo, un conocimiento profundo de los cantes, que tiene perfectamente asimilados y que por ello canta con una extraordinaria pureza, aunque imprimiéndoles su propio carácter, son sólidos, muy bien construidos y con mucha musicalidad, y los interpreta con una gran emoción y elegancia. Es muy de agradecer también que trate de conservar una serie de cantes que apenas se oyen ya, muchos de ellos preciosos, y que acabarían por desaparecer si no fuera por personas como usted. Un fuerte abrazo y mi enhorabuena otra vez.
