Abstract

In his album Entre copa y copa, canciones of Cantina (2006), Lila Downs, a Mexico-Tsunian artist of music from the world, offers a composition entitled ‘Agua de Rosas’, in which the artist focuses on the pink bath that Zapoan Zaragoza zapoan heerissers, in Oaxaca, Mexico, have given her her to relax and swear her sentences. This song is also a funeral delicate addressed to Idalia Linares Sánchez, a personal friend. Idalia Linares represented an active member of the Coalición Obrera, Campesina y estudiantil del Istmo, an Indian association that won the 1981 Juchitán municipal elections. An interview with the daughter of Idalia Linares, Marlene Linares, who has had a migrant experience in the United States, as well as Lila Downs’ poetic speech, will ask us about the lives and subjectivity of Zapoean women, the continuities and breaks between two generations, and the tensions between the old and the modern.
