In spite of many successful engagements with opera companies in Europe and the United States, Soledad Berrios never lost touch with the music of Latin America. Ultimately it is in this music where she feels she is best able to share and demonstrate all the dramatic power of expression in her dark, velvety voice.
In her vast repertoire, Soledad Berrios demonstrates a rich musical spectrum with original and beautifully arranged themes of traditional Latin American Folklore and sensual Boleros. However her strongest emotional and musical expression is reached when she sings Tango. In all she sings there is always a haunting and melancholy timbre which goes deep into the heart of the listener.
