Charo is making people pay attention again — her specialty — on Season 24 of Dancing With the Stars. And while she’s always been a dancer (watch her shimmy in this 1971 Tonight Show appearance), she really broke through because Charo is an immensely talented guitar player. She was twice named Guitar Player magazine’s “Best Classical Flamenco Guitarist in the World.”
Check out the videos below to see — and hear — why. Sure you may think first of the Cuchi-Cuchi and the raw sex appeal she has carried throughout her career. But this dynamic woman has got the skillz, as the the say. Watch the strength and dexterity of Charo’s hands and fingers, no matter what claims age makes on her.
Amazingly this one is from 2013 — she is still a master player look at those fingers!
Rocking out. Just rocking out:
