Table of contents What's This?
Instantaneous (lacquer) disc recordings of Mexican-American opera singers Alma and Alfonse Pedroza.
Little is known about Mexican-born opera singers Alma and Alfonse Pedroza. They were introduced by Enrico Caruso Jr. and later emmigrated to Los Angeles. They both had minor singing careers but Alma was noted for her wide vocal range, which reached an octave above High C, and she made several radio broadcasts on the strength of this talent.
29 disc recordings
