Mandioca – MS-005
Argentina 1969

An obscure singer from the underground Rioplatense scene who released only one 45 on the small indie label Mandioca in 1969. Her real name is Monika Duek and she didn't record any more songs, she was an art student and moved to Rome shortly after this song was recorded, and then to Paris. She dedicated herself to photography and still lives in Paris. The song "You" was written by an uruguayan friend of hers who was part of the Tupamaros, a left-wing guerrilla movement.
