      I have to say, for being 125 years old, Charo looks damned good.

      omigod! Every queen I know is in P-town right now & I can’t believe I missed Charo! We need more of her. Her story is amazing-

      And, from Wikipedia, she’s listed as 60 yrs old… Lo dudo! :)

      Born María del Rosario Pilar Martínez Molina Baeza
      January 15, 1951 (age 60)
      Murcia, Region of Murcia, Spain
      Occupation Actress, singer, guitarist
      Spouse Xavier Cugat (1966–1978)
      Kjell Rasten (1978–present; 1 son)

      María del Rosario Pilar Martínez Molina Gutiérrez de los Perales Santa Ana Romanguera y de la Hinojosa Rasten[1] (born January 15, 1951), better known as Charo, is a Spanish-American actress, comedienne, and flamenco guitarist, best known for her flamboyant stage presence, her provocative outfits, and her trademark phrase (“cuchi-cuchi”).

      Charo’s an extremely brilliant guitarist. Seriously. Among the greatest flamenco guitarists ever.

      But she’s famous for “cuchi-cuchi.” Oh well, that’s America.

      Here’s a live version of “Malagueña,” probably the most recognizable flamenco song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIsTBq7aG7I&feature=related

      She just shreds that shit in her gold sequined tux.

      @the crustybastard: Thank you ever so much for that link!! Her playing is all you said it was. I cranked up my cheap-o computer speakers and she STILL sounds fantastic. After I post this I’m going for another listen and then lunch.

      @christopher di spirito: It was Carnival. Not pride. Hmmmph. ;) (Essentially Pride and Halloween parade mixed together).

      #5 is NOT Leslie Jordan, it’s P’town’s official Town Crier.
