Chabuca de veras: el origen de su voz

Difusión

No debió ser fácil para María Isabel sobreponerse al juicio público al que se vio sometida por su divorcio con el aviador brasileño Enrique Fuller Da Costa.  Con tal solo treinta años, una naciente carrera y tres niños pequeños a cargo, Chabuca se enfrenta a la pacatería de la alta sociedad capitalina en una época de anquilosadas normas sociales. Sin embargo, dicha decisión significó también el primer paso hacia la encuentro de una voz propia.

Estamos en la Lima de inicios de los años cincuenta. Desde el sillón de Pizarro, la “revolución restaudora” del general Manuel Odría le insuflaba un nuevo vigor a una mellada aristocracia. Como bien señala Mario Vargas Llosa en “Conversación en la Catedral”, el lugar de cada uno estaba estrictamente definido desde el primer llanto posterior al alumbramiento. Y a Chabuca, hija de una acaudalada familia afincada en un asiento minero de las Cotabambas Aurarias, le correspondía la reposada discreción, la docilidad de una dama que tenía ante sí los iluminados salones de los principales clubes de la antigua Ciudad de las Reyes.

Visto de esta forma, la inconformidad de su ex esposo con la vena musical de Isabel Granda, nombre con el que empezó a hacerse conocida en el medio artístico capitalino, puede entenderse como una velada sanción a una mujer que desafiaba con su arrojo e ingenio todo lo que de ella se esperaba.

Siendo todavía una adolescente, Chabuca Granda forma en complicidad con Pilar “Chamaca” Mujica, el dúo “Luz y sombra” y luego un trinomio con las hermanas Martha y Charo Gibson. La preminencia de la música cubana y mexicana en la industria discográfica de la Patria Grande las llevó a conformar un repertorio compuesto principalmente por boleros y rancheras.

Chabuca, la intérprete, se mueve en los escenarios de las emisoras capitalinas con composiciones ajenas. Su insatisfacción crecía deseando enunciar sus propias palabras, asir el sonido en sus términos. Sola y con nada más que su propio afán, torna en María Sueños. Tejiendo sus sentidos un mundo que es solo de ella, persiguiendo su estrella, anda y desanda caminos[1].

Con “Lima de veras”, su primera composición, empieza a labrar la cuesta arriba. Las acaudaladas familias de la urbe no le perdonan su éxito. Poco tiempo después, conoce a Victoria Angulo, su “flor de la canela”, e inicia la exploración de una poética personal evocando con nostalgia el pasado arcádico del río, el puente y la alameda que había conocido a través de su padre[2].

En 1956, el trío “Los Chamas” toma aquel vals de inusitado vuelo literario y cismática estructura musical, lo populariza y entregándoselo a los chilenos de “Los cuatro Hermanos Silva”, provocan la temprana internacionalización de la joven cantora. Iniciaba así la leyenda de la inconforme Chabuca, que renovando la canción popular, defendió, en sus palabras, “que una mujer podía usar el idioma para algo más que pedir tocino en la bodega”.

[1] Fragmento del vals “María Sueños” compuesto por Chabuca Granda e incluido en el LP “Dialogando” (1967) acompañada por Óscar Avilés.

[2] Sin duda puede hacerse un análisis crítico del contenido ideológico subyacente a esta primera etapa en su carrera. Al respecto, recomiendo consultar los artículos “Chabuca y sus contradicciones”, de Daniel Mathews Carmelino y “Música y poder: Aristocracia y Revolución en la obra de Chabuca Granda”, de Raúl R. Romero. Este último incluido en el libro Música Popular y Sociedad en el Perú Contemporáneo (2015). Para una reflexión más genérica del funcionamiento mismo del discurso de la Arcadia Colonial está el célebre ensayo “Lima la horrible”, de Sebastián Salazar Bondy (1964).

Do you have web-sites where I can copy codes from to change the layout of my blogspot blog? The templates on blogspot are fine to get you started, but I’m ready for a change..

    Every code I try either leaves a substantial gap at the top of the page, or at the bottom of the web page. Its most definitely that code triggering it. I have actually tried numerous codes attempting to conceal the blogs & prolonged network, but they all leave a white void either on top or near the bottom. Anybody got one that doesn’t create the white gap? Or how to eliminate the white void?.
