Guadalupe Ambriz Piñón at 90 years old takes up the writing of her autobiography and highlights those moments in which thanks to her great effort she helped supporting her family since she was 16 years old. The lack of money made her a woman of work and firm will. Music has been a fundamental part of her life. She forged her own family by the side of the musician and conductor Angel Cu León. As a bass player, she was part of the National Symphony Orchestra. In her role as singer she chose Mexican music and boleros. She remembers those special tours in which she participated with Pedro Infante, Pepe Guizar, Moises Alatorre, among other figures. She is a woman who is very proud of her three sons.
