Biography

María Isabel Quiñones Gutiérrez, 21 March 1954, Huelva, Andalucía, Spain. Martirio first attracted attention singing as a member of folk group Jarcha, which was noted for its repertoire of social protest songs. She was known occasionally as Maribel Quiñones before adopting the stage name Martirio, which translates into English as Martyr. Singing vivid contemporary music, known loosely as new flamenco, her stylistic repertoire contains echoes of traditional flamenco, tango and guaracha but is couched in a form that recognizes rock, rap and jazz. These stylistic references have helped Martirio develop an extensive following especially among the younger generation. Among artists with whom she has worked are Chano Domínguez, Jerry González, Jesús Lavilla, and her son, Raúl Rodríguez.
