Las Mujeres/Mulheres-She in Spanish and Portuguese

Well as we enter autumn we find ourselves in the mist of Hispanic Heritage Month and in conjunction with that month I decided to produce a show on the women's music of Spanish and Portuguese speakers of the Americas.

So, other than developing a playlist I reached out a local wealth of talent and knowledge, Cecilia Esquivel ( Cantare, of EvaLuna. Cecilia is Argentinian born, but has lived and created fabulous music in the DC area for years.

Together I hope folks enjoyed our chats, the music, the insight Cecilia brought and was inspired to learn more about the individual women played on the show and the urgency to support live music.

As always your feedback, comments and support are always welcomed. Please also feel free to email us at or join our Facebook Fan Page, Sophie's Parlor.

Helen's Women's Music Show September 3, 2009

The history of Sophie's Parlor is inextricably entwined with the history of women's music. The genre of women's music began in the early 1970's and was launched by many of the women who started the radio show, Sophie's Parlor, at Georgetown University's WGTB. After four years on the air at the University, Sophie's Parlor moved to WPFW where it has persisted as the longest-running radio show devoted to music by women, about women, for everybody!
