Peruvian Tania Libertad was born in Zaña but raised in the coastal town of Chiclayo where she began singing romantic ballads at the age of five.
She became a local star a decade later while studying fishing engineering in Lima. Tania Libertad started making passionate bolero records after moving to Mexico in 1977, paying tribute to Latin legend José Alfredo Jiménez on Canta a J.A. Jiménez. She also teamed up with talented composer Armando Manzanero on Libertad de Manzanero and set music to La Vida Ese Parentesis, a book of poems by Mario Benedetti. ~ Drago Bonacich, Rovi
