Isabel (Chabuca) Granda (Larco).

(Born 3 September, 1920). Peruvian creole music composer and singer. Her musical talents were discovered quite early on, and by the age of twelve, had decided that her vocation was to be in music. Chabuca came from a musical family, many of her ancestors having played with well-known filarmónicos groups. She gained exposure by forming a singing duo with a friend, the two performing frequently on the radio, and she also became one of the first Peruvians to make an appearance on television. By 1940, she had formed a trio that performed in theatres around Peru, and she composed much of the music that they performed. Her music is seen to be influenced by Aztec or Mexican music, and includes the popular song La Flor de la Canela.
