Nacha Guevara

Nacha Guevara is an Argentine singer and actress from Mar de Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

At the beginning of 1970, one of her pivotal works was "Nacha sings Benedetti", where she and Alberto Favero, musical partner and at that time husband, sets some of the most famous poems of Uruguayan poet Mario Benedetti to music.

In 1973 she obtained ample recognition by critics and audiences with a big revue named Las mil y una Nachas (One thousand and one Nachas). Nacha Guevara exiled herself first to Peru then Mexico during the Dirty War, threatened by the Triple A death squad. She made a comeback in 1976 for a new version of "Las mil y una Nachas". The show was never performed. After the dress rehearsal prior to the opening night, a bomb destroyed the theater, killing members of the crew and forcing her to flee the country once more.
