Blessed Manuela Josefa Cabrera and better known with the stage name of “Fefita La Grande,” this Dominican merengue tipico musician is undoubtedly among her country’s most accomplished accordionists. Her albums consist of La Pimienta ha sido la Que Pica (1980), Todos los Hombres Kid Buenos (1994), and La Ciudad Corazon (2001). By age nine, she was offering televised accordion shows and playing live for Dominican politics statistics. She was the initial musician to introduce the Dominican merengue tipico musical design to Western european listeners. She was raised in San Ignacio de Sabaneta, Santiago Rodriguez, Dominican Republic as the little girl of the amateur accordion participant. She and Dominican vocalist Tono Rosario both increased to popularity as meringue music artists.
