Afro-Puerto Rican jazz singer, cabaret performer, and Queen of Filin Lucy Fabery, b. 1931. Although called “La Muñeca de Chocolate” (“The Chocolate Doll”) for her dark-skinned beauty, this label "is actually the antithesis of Lucy; a doll is something static and inert, and she vibrates even when sitting still.“ Luis Rafael Sánchez writes,

The memory of anyone who ever heard Lucy Fabery automatically records the magnetic strangeness of her voice. And then the diffuse spasms of her body; spasms that strip spectators of their serene detachment. Listening to the wonderful sound of Lucy Fabery, seeing the singer Lucy Fabery elevate physical movement to the level of a concert by a full orchestra, we see the truth expressed by [Alejo] Carpentier when he writes, "The Caribbean sounds, resounds.”
