Milady Merette-Polanco, Dominican singer, winner of an "Independent Music Award" in the category of Best Latin for her song "Hábitos Pasados" with arrangements by James Hershman.
During her studies at Columbia University, Milady sang in the University Choir and was the second voice in various performances with groups and soloists in New York. She recorded "Donde Estarás" with the South American group Cumbre, and with Raices al Viento, she recorded the duet "Rumba Gitana". In her most recent work as a soloist, she has recorded five powerful and emotional ballads, with latin, pop and jazz rhythms.
Milady also participated in El Taller Latinoamericano's musical production "Recuerda Boricua". On this CD, she sang the bolero "Amor Impreso" and a vallenato, "Busca Olvido".
Milady's voice has a very special tone, a nuance and sonority that was compared, not without reason, to the sound of a shell in El Diario-La Prensa's article "Milady: Princesa con voz de caracola" (09-29-00).
The exact date of this concert is not known, but it occurred in the marked year around this time.
