About Guadalupe Pineda

Born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Guadalupe Pineda is a Mexican musical icon, and has performed throughout Latin America and Europe. She began her career as a vocalist after moving to Mexico City, where she sang in coffee shops and small venues, building her reputation and collaborating with local groups, including Grupo Sanampay. In 1980 Pineda recorded an album with Carlos "Caíto" Diaz that elevated her profile as a solo artist. She then honed her skills performing anywhere she was invited, including prisons, mental hospitals, offices, and city squares, before releasing her 1984 breakthrough hit "Yolanda (Te Amo)," a duet with Pablo Milanés that sold over a million and a half copies. Pineda would add over 25 titles to her discography, several achieving gold and platinum status. ~ Evan C. Gutierrez
