About Rita Vidaurri
Rita Vidaurri was a successful performer in the U.S., Mexico and throughout Central and South America in the 1940s. She toured Cuba with legends Celia Cruz and Olga Guillot. Over the years, Rita performed with famous artists including Tin Tán, Pedro Vargas, Trío Tariacuri, Lalo ‘El Piporro’ González, Cantinflas, Nat King Cole and many more. In 1957, she was selected as the Jax Beer Poster model. In 2004, Esperanza produced her CD, “La Calandria,” after producing an homenaje for her thus returning Rita to the singing circuit and eventually bringing her together with Beatriz “La Paloma del Norte” Llamas and Blanca Rodriguez aka “Blanca Rosa,” to form Las Tesoros de San Antonio.
